I remember my mom rockin' these 80's legwarmers to Jazzercise class. Legwarmers are back in fashion, but I'm not sure if I could rock them like Olivia here.
But...I'd definitley put them on my kids. Here's a super easy tutorial for making your own Baby Legwarmers.
Women's Trouser Socks
Coordinating/or not thread
20 minutes or less
I got these in a pack of 3 at Target for like $8.
Make 3 cuts in your socks. Just eyeball it. No need to measure. You can cut both socks at the same time.
Discard the toe & heel pieces.
Fold the short middle secion in half (wrong sides together) with a raw edge and a folded edge making a cuff.
Slip this cuff on to the cut end of your long trouser sock. All of the raw edges should be together at the bottom as seen in this photo. All fabrics will be right side out.
Sew all of the raw edges together using a straight stitch. Just flatten the rolled edge as you sew but try not to stretch the sock. If you have a serger, you can use it for the edge for a more finished/professional look.
And that's it! Here's the finished product.
As baby support hoes...
Or for bigger kids to lengthen short sleeves for cooler weather...
Enjoy & Happy sewing!
