I have been wanting to make leg warmers for a long time.
Ardene sells knee highs cheap - 5-6 pairs for $10.
Miss Lily has been enrolled in gymnastics or ballet or both since she was about 18 months. She likes her leg warmers. I used this tutorial (note there are many out there and I machine-stitched) and came up with these.
This first time I saw Flashdance, it was a BETA (did you catch that? a say-it-again BETA) recording of Flashdance at my BFF's house. Her dad "fast-forwarded" any "sketchy parts". I remember that day like it was yesterday, especially the Maniac scene.... formative moment. Like passing "finite" math.First, when there's nothing but a slow glowing dreamThat your fear seems to hide deep inside your mindAll alone I have cried silent tears full of prideIn a world made of steel, made of stone
