I recently devised a way to make a pattern for running tights where there is only the inner seam on the legs. This will allow me to display my fabric uninterrupted on the outside of my legs and to the middle of my front and back! You can see the result in the picture at right. It is especially effective you have something like a pictorial print rather than some repeating motif on a generic background, because it looks like you have a big picture to show and not just just real estate for repetitive printing of a motif. Now I must make a whole bunch of pairs of such tights as I’ve been hoarding some pretty cool spandex for things I could make for myself without a lot of interruption to the pattern!
I will show how I did this in another post after I do a few more and capture the process in pictures to help with written instructions.
It’s been a while since I’ve made something this effective, this well from an idea, and that I’m this excited about! Definitely a gold rating! 🙂
