I guess I'm making pink leggings!? 

Using pattern drafted off RTW leggings.


Finished! I did it, they are very pink. "Millennial" pink? I wasn't sure about them part way through, but when I put them on with my grey linen dress that I'd been imagining wearing them with, I think it works!

They certainly are "naked pants" and will only be worn with dresses or tunics. ;)

I've been experimenting with how to finish the waistbands and hems, since I don't have a coverstitch machine and while the twin needle has been going ok, thinner fabrics still get that pesky raised channel between the two rows of stitching. I put bands on the bottom of these, and I think it looks ok but I stretched one too much and may come back and fix it depending on how it looks after a couple washes.
