it must've ben TORTURE working with that fabric. It came out great.

I make rodarte legging knockoffs by knitting them. It goes really, really fast because the needs are a huge gauge and you don't have to be too precise-- and also, there's no other way to make a convincingly messy, dropstitch effect.

Let me know if you want one!

those tights are amazing and i love how you layered those diy organza skirts.
i always look forward to your diy's and seeing more of your amazing personal style. you are truly an inspiration!

ps. sorry for the excessive fangirl love. i just cant help myself around you ;)

Chic and Charming

I absolutely adore those leggings, and I don't even like leggings. You did an amazing job.

lady coveted

oh my god... for a second there, i thought you crocheted these yourself... but still... sewing them? you're amazing... these are absolutely incredible.

Zad

love the last pic!!!!

AngieMontreal

They turned out amazing! That fabric must have been such an incredible pain to sew with though, but the end result was worth it I'd say!

A trick in case you want to continue sewing with this or other loose holey fabrics is to use some tissue paper on the seams -- basically layer the paper under where you're sewing (I forget if you need it on the top as well) so that the machine won't be able to suck the fabric down into the hole... and then afterwards you just tear it away!

Ah, and I always forget after composing a tip -- your leggings look so great! I wish I still lived near a really good fabric store (Britex in San Francisco if you ever go there!) where I could grab couture-quality gems!

susie_bubble

Your diy projects have been a) blowing me away and b) putting me to shame (no sewing machine or time...) but this one takes the biscuit...it's the fabric really as I haven't seen anything like it.... especially with that colour combo....this Mandors place sounds amazing!

Lola

Love these, love love love them. My fav QM diy ever!

Jey

ahh I LOVE IT! you are absolutely the greatest at DIY projects. kudos, once more!

bluehammer

I really like these too! I can imagine the fabric must have been hellish, but I love the result - even more than most of the other leggings and tights featured recently.

My favourite of all your DIY projects was the Miu Miu skirt.

amanda

totally awesome! i really like the colors- and i appreciate the DIY posts because those are the best inspiration- it gets me thinking about what things i can make myself.
thanks for this post!

Wow, another fantastic DIY pair. If you had the time and inclination, I bet you could sell these babies ...

Princess Shirley

Wow, I love it....you look so beautiful. Keep up the great work sis!

Chic Looks

your DIY projects are so inspiring, and this fabric is so amazing, ive never seen anything like it, also my sewing skills are still up and coming so please do an how to sew leggings post a bit like your miu miu skirt tutorial you did some time ago... pretty please :)

Queen Michelle

Hey Sis!!!
Chic Looks - all I did was literally take an old pair of leggings, cut open all the seams to get the pattern and used that. I just altered it to get the length I wanted and that was pretty much it. Easy!

adrienne

The first outfit with the organza skirts is amazing!The transparency and shape are blowing my mind!

Shen-Shen

This is amazing! I wish I had the skill to make that.

KD

I like you version much more than Rodarte's!

Mademoiselle Robot

The DIY dress is gorgeous! I wish I could sew that well...
I am excited about your Ten Tips, can't wait to read them :)

Rowena

Time well spent I say. Awesome...

brandi

i am in love with those tights! GORG!

ambika

The skirt as top is just genius. I've yet to get too crazy with knit fabrics but I'm thinking it's about time I figured them out.

penny

they look fantastic!! you are very talented

Hebden

Beautiful job...these are incredible.

Brigadeiro

Great DIY project! It turned out beautifully, so I'm sure it was the effort! I absolutely love all the outfits you paired it with too, especially that Zara dress & DIY dress (am so envious of your talent! Am now inspired to get back to my sewing machine)

Mike

they look amazing! love your look

Mimi

Unbelievable leggings! You have such a good eye...someone else may have seen that fabric and not considered the possibilities.
A well spend £20 - definitely!!!

belle

STOP BEING SO PERFECT! D:

the.ramonas

Well if it's any consolation, those leggings, and their accompanying looks, are absolutely brilliant.

When are you going to open your shop!?

surimay

haha wow! great work! those tights look awesome and the colours go really well together :D i wish i could sew properly. my only skill is shortening things. lol.

chantelle

Wow, those babies look amazing on you! you rock that shit girl!

Nicole

I need a pair. I love when you wear outfits with multiple DIY pieces! They totally showcase your talent.

Zoe

ooh they are great, they came out more like trousers than leggings almost! admirable as it is that she is so dedicated to her animal friendly causes, natalie portman killed the rodarte look a little with her own shoes

marian

those came out great darling! they look fab! You should create a line for sale! yes Miss Portman did make the look more chic & demure than fierce.

I don't wear leggings, but I want the leggings you make. You have such a good eye for materials - it would never have occurred to me to use this material for leggings!

Looking forward to more of your DIY projects & tips, they may push me to give into temptation & buy a sewing machine so I can experiment myself!

FabSugarUK

Love these. Please open a shop!

sarah

I second that FabSugarUK...

Mandors is a wonderful place! They give a cheeky wee student discount too! I made a pair of leggings last year from some stretchy spandex, but they look pretty dam amateurish compared to these ones! Quite saggy at the knees, hence why I only wore them once!

Queen Michelle

I shan't be opening a shop any time soon I'm afraid - even I don't have the patience to make multiples of the same items.
DIY is all about acting on impulse for me. I get an idea and I have to act on it right away, but as soon as I NEED to do a project I immediately get bored of it! Maybe I have some weird form of OCD.

Jem

I'm totally in to making DIY leggings aswell at the moment. I try to go for fabrics with a bit of structured stretch cause I only have an ordinary sewing machine & it's nigh-on impossible to get lightweight stretch fabrics to feed through correctly & I just end up turning the air blue with profanities! I really like all your DIY creations, they look very polished.

hailey

Great diy, you really have a knack for it.

Scheharazade

The last dress is lovely^-^

bisous

leigh

oh gosh - the leggings are wonderful!

bianca alexis

Where did you get your gloves! please tell!

Queen Michelle

Thanks for the crochet appreciation ladies xx
Bianca they are from Gloved Up.

Sarah

wow i can't believe you sewed those! amazing; i love what you paired them with, the differing textures makes this outfit so interesting.

i just started a blog! i would love for you to check it out
