Completed: More Ooh La Leggings!

Ahoy! Just a couple more pairs of these! Why yes, it is the Ooh La Leggings pattern from Papercut Patterns. I'm still in love with this pattern. Fun seaming, and I had a go and refashioned 4 pairs of terrible store-bought leggings into one pair of color-blocked Ooh La's!

I love the high rise on these! I may take another inch or so off the top for the next version for a slightly better fit.

The color blocking is a little loud, I'll admit. I've worn these to the gym once, and relegated them to the backpacking pile.
This fabric is a weird one, since it's from other store-bought leggings and I long removed the tags, I have no idea what it's actually made of.

For the second pair, I used this Girl Charlee Ponte-De-Roma.It has less stretch than other knits I've used to make these before, so they're a bit tight. I used a light yellow and pale pink combo in my serger to constrcut these, and some of those threads show through, which is alright by me!

I am in love with this print, although the fabric doesn't breathe very well. It's quite synthetic-feeling.

The knees ended up being a little tight, so I might just chop a little length off right above the knee and wearing these as a "bermuda" type of length.

Oh boy. I kinda match my rug!!
