So…I wrote on my Facebook fan page a little while ago that I had been asked by a return customer if I could make her a pair of “leggie-legs”. I had no idea what leggie-legs were, so asked her to send me some links or photos. She sent me a link to IlanioWear.com, and here’s what I saw.
I’ve come so far, grown so much. This daring, playful, sensual woman is no longer trapped by the constraints of a religious sub-culture that tried to make her into a goodie-good. I know who I am now. And I knew as soon as I saw the photos that I would LOVE to make a pair for my customer.
IlanioWear.com has gone out of business, but they’ve posted their patterns online and say that you can use them as you want. So I downloaded the pattern and got to work. Here’s the first pair, the prototype. My customer said she wanted earth tones to go with another item I’d sold her, so I told her I’d make an experimental pair with material I had around, and if she liked them, she could buy them, or she could tell me what colors she wanted.
Hmmm…maybe I need to make myself a pair.
