The best part however, in my humble opinion, is that I finished off the top of the leggings in black bamboo/spandex jersey. Built in short shorts! So throw these on with whatever you want, short or long, and don't worry about tugging and pulling at your stockings all night!
Due to the delicate nature of the stretch lace and mesh these leggings should be hand washed in cold water and hung or laid flat to dry. Please also treat them with care while putting them on, as you would with a pair of stockings made entirely of lace.
All the seams are overlocked for durability, the leg openings are finished with a stretch cover stitch, and the waistband is finished with a narrow lingerie elastic as well as cover stitch so the WB is nice and stretchy, yet will not lose its shape. The WB hits at around the belly button/true waist.
This item is ready to ship and available in the following sizes:
XS - fits 22-24 waist, 32-34 hip - 2 available
S - fits 24-26 waist, 34-36 hip - SOLD OUT
M - fits 27-30 waist, 37-39 hip - 1 available
L - fits 31-34 waist, 40-43 hip - SOLD OUT
The inseam for all sizes is 32". I can make them a bit shorter, but am unable to make them much longer, due to the limitations created by the width of the lace fabric.
Thanks to my friend Mandy for modelling for me!
