My girls love leggings. We have leggings in every color. But I really want some that have a cute print and a little more personality. I saw these adorable tights at Wal-mart and really found myself wishing they were leggings. This is about the time I realized that I have a sewing machine and I kind of know how to use it. I began to think of ways I could DIY TIGHTS INTO LEGGINGS. So I bought them and rushed home to try the idea that was in my head. This is one of those times when the idea worked perfectly!
Tights (old or new)
3. Zigzag stitch the ends of each strip. This photo only shows the bottoms zigzagged, but I ended up doing both sides. Zigzag the bottom of the tights too. So, now you should have a “ruffled” hem on all pieces.
5. Slide one of the strips on the leg just above the ruffled hem.
On the other tights I just did the zigzag stitch ruffle hem and left them like that.
I love both pairs! They are adorable and SUPER quick and easy.
