Matchy-Matchy | Ottobre Design Woman 05/2016 no. 9 Classic Leggings

How could this lycra/spandex fabric be resisted when it held the colors of my shoes, top and favorite hoodie?!  And just like that, a new pair of leggings was made.
I've made the Ottobre Design Woman 05/2016 no. 9 Classic Leggings so many times now, it's nice to sort of sew on 'automatic'.  One pattern piece for both legs that wraps around with only one inner leg seam.   Sometimes I want to cut this pattern in two, for an outer as well as inner leg seam.... but so far I've not gone to the trouble.   You can see some of the others I've made here and here.  Btw, want to add, that right now I am not purchasing anymore Ottobre Design Woman pattern magazines.   Every.single.time I placed an order, either through her Etsy shop or through her Website, even using PayPal, for some reason my credit card company classified it as a fraudulent charge and froze my account.  It was one great big pain to unfreeze the card and I do not want to go through all that hassle again and I cannot purchase these magazines locally or even within my country, to my knowledge.  It's also interesting that a few folks on PatternReview.com have also spoken of their credit card companies doing the same to them.  So I'm sewing from the older issues I have and enjoying these.
Anyway another lycra/spandex picked up at the local textile outlet warehouse All About Fabrics that is only open once a month.  These sort of knits make the best leggings with their 4-way stretch, luxurious feel and great recovery.
Of course sweet Suzi always coordinates well in her classic black.  :)
Happy Sewing All!   :)

  1. Sometimes there is nothing quite like instant sewing gratification. Your leggings look wonderful. Pats to Suzi.

  2. Even in a sporty outfit you are looking so elegant, Lisa! That‘s a great outfit and you wear leggins so well!

  3. Matchy, matchy goodness Lisa. Relaxed sportswear never looked so good.

  4. What a great outfit! You look like Spring! I’m thinking I might take a stab at some leggings. You’ve put that back at the top of my to-be-sewn list.

  5. No doubt about it, that fabric was made for you!

  6. Beautifully coordinated outfit and perfect colours for spring.

  7. Love the coordination. What a perfect outfit for spring!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.~Lisa
