  • womens leggings size

    I'm making a ladies outfit for a trading post and was wondering what was a general size to make. I'm a little on the heavy side (too much fry bread) so making my size will be too big, So could you respond with your sizes (calves, ankle, length) and I'll take an average.

    I know everyone is different and there are some very petite dancers out there, but I'd still like to know.

    Well, since your not asking for my waist size sure.

    ankle: 8 4/8 th
    length: 16 1/8 th
    bottom of knee: 12 3/8 th

        If you are wanting like a small-medium-large size you can use a standard pattern for women's PJ's.

          wouldn't that make them kinda loose and shapeless?

              Thanks All!!!

              Looks like I'm gonna make 13 1/2 at the top and 9 1/2 at the bottom and 14" tall. I'm gonna cut an arc at the back for the heel and in the front for the arch. I read on another thread about the same questions, but there was one lady that said to attach a piece of elastic to the back of the leggins, sewing down both ends to make a loop then slip your foot and leg through the elastic. it keeps the leggin in place and doesn't bind too tight.

                I am back for those of you who used to tease me when I used "Ahpi Shikopa". No, my name hasn't changed, but I decided that if you were going to tease me with "Autumn Apple Princess," I might as well use the name. No hard feelings to anyone anymore.

                Anyway, for those...

                Ok folks a question on lining the leggings and clout, or aprons, of the suit. Looking around the net for some ideas for ribbonwork colors, I noticed that one person puts a lining in the straight dance suits she makes "to prevent stretching, skin irritation and sweat damage to wool." How many...

                First time making leggings URGENT!
                by chibi
                So, I'm making a new pair of leggings for my jingle dress out of a sparkle dot material. I'm got the basic squares cut out and the interfacing is ironed on. I'm just really nervous and unsure about what shape they should be, and cutting them. I always mess up with the cutting. I have enough material...

                How to figure how many beads. Please!
                by Traditional Rally
                I've been planning a full Mens tradish outfit for myself for about a year now. All of my patterns are on backing and I plan to mass order my beads for the sake of matching. Now I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW MANY HANKS TO ORDER. I am in great need of some "Old Indian Tricks". I plan to use size 11s...

                What fabrics do you recommend?
                by Heals the Wild
                Hi everyone, I was wondering what fabrics you use for your cloth dresses and the best type of ribbon to use? I'm hoping to spend the winter making a dress and wanted to get some hints from everyone here.

                Thanks so much!
