Have you ever caught yourself in gym class admiring the toned lady on the mat next to you in her perfect little [Insert Overpriced Athletic Wear Here] outfit? Well, I plead very guilty!
JEALOUS NO MORE!
HELLO PEACOCK SPANDEX!
The Fehr Trade Steeplechase leggings made their debut at this weekend's New York Road Runners 4 mile race in Central Park. Among the almost 10,000 runners, I didn't see a single person with pants like mine. Ahh...the RTW Fasting benefits of not allowing yourself to shop...
All it took to sew these up was one lovely Sunday afternoon at my friend Carol's using her serger. Since there are no inseams, the ENTIRE pants are constructed of four pieces. I cut out a mirror image of these two oddly shaped pieces:
The peacock spandex is from Spandex Lab in the garment district. Isn't it fun?
Now that I have one pair finished, I'm eager to try the other two garment district spandex stores (Spandex House, and Spandex World) for more fun prints!
