This fabric wasn’t meant to be leggings when I picked it out. I had a really fun maxi dress in mind, maybe something with a cute wrap top and some fluttery sleeves. The tie dye print is so large and fun, I thought a maxi dress was really going to be the best way to showcase it! But when I received it, I couldn’t ever seem to commit to a pattern when I looked at it. I loved the idea of making some tie dye leggings, but I kept having this silly idea that the fabric was too pretty and too soft to be something as simple and usable as that! I held on to it longer than I planned, and finally January rolled around… And with it came the Activewear themed Sew My Style month, as well as the #SewFancyPants challenge. I took this lovely combination as a sign that this fabric was, in fact, meant to be a pair of fancy pants leggings, and finally went about cutting into it!
