You know when you see an amazing old lady on the street and her crazy style is strangely inspiring? Well this design was inspired by a lady I saw rocking a pair of solid on the top/sheer on the bottom pants, just walking down the street on a Wednesday afternoon like it was no big deal. I've had bike shorts on the brain lately so I immediately noticed her pants and decided they needed to be reincarnated into a bike shorts/leggings hybrid.
The upper portion of these leggings is made of SUPER soft bamboo/spandex blend fabric. The lower sheer portion is made of polyester/spandex sheer mesh. Due to the delicate nature of the mesh these tights should be hand washed in cool water and hung to dry.
All the seams are overlocked for durability, the leg openings are finished with a stretch zig zag stitch, and the waistband is finished with a narrow lingerie elastic as well as zig zag stitch so the WB is nice and stretchy, yet will not lose its shape. The WB hits at around the belly button/true waist. I find that a regular rise looks so much more fresh now, and really looks a lot better under most clothing, much smoother.
For now this item will be made to order, and is available in the following sizes:
S - fits 24-26 waist, 34-36 hip
M - fits 27-30 waist, 37-39 hip
L - fits 31-34 waist, 40-43 hip
The inseam for all sizes is 34", let me know if you need a different length, it's no problem to change. Looking for a larger or smaller size? Send me a convo, equal fashion for all!
Since this item is custom made to your measurements it may take from a couple days up to 2 weeks to complete, depending on how many other orders I have lined up. I'll do my best to get it to you ASAP, just keep in mind that all my designs are made with my own two hands, so a little time is necessary ;)
