Lace legwarmers. So pretty and fun to make. Allison found this idea while on one of her design searches. She's a fan of pretty things and in dance class...perfect match.
lining (knit works well)
3/8" or so elastic
sock/legwarmer or person for measurement
Multiply the foot/shoe measurement by 1.5 to give fluff to the legwarmer. If you used a legwarmer as measurement...all done measuring.
2. Cut lining and lace pieces. Cut 2 pieces of each. (Step #1 number by 1.5 times the length of the sock or leg) The longer/wider your pieces the more slouch you'll get. Our legwarmers could use more slouch...I didn't do 1.5 times on mine...was using a scrap of lace. I will make them larger next time. Too wide can be made smaller. Too narrow....out of luck.
***I used the scalloped edge on the lace as the top edge of the legwarmer.
Cut 8 elastic strips the length of the foot measurement in Step #1.
6. Stitch the side seam with a zigzag. Line up elastics strips.
