About a week before I left for the expo, I was asked if I would fill in for a teacher who was ill and would not be able to teach. The class was on sewing with spandex. I wanted to have a few pieces to demonstrate, so I quickly made up a pair of tights. The pattern is from Seamster Patterns and it is by far the best tight pattern I have ever worked with!!! I am now a devoted make my own tights gal!
With the tights laying flat, you can actually see the shape of the body. The tights were designed to have feet, but directions are given for footless tights as well.
One note, be sure to use a fabric that stretches in the crosswise as well as the lengthwise grain. Remember, they are tights and you want a good fit around the body and you also want to be able to pull them up!
Happy tight making!!!
