Pattern Description:
Fun and funky tights and stockings
Pattern Sizing:
33-50 inch hip
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, I was a pattern tester for this pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love this pattern. The fit is terrific. My hip is 46 inches so I should have sized up but my first muslin pair where a bit big so I went down to a size XL. Perfect!
Fabric Used:
Poly Lycra knit from my stash, the muslin pair was a cheap mystery knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Not a single change to my second pair. I am currently making a muslin pair for my 6' sister in the size 2XL. I have added to the length of the legs plus used the 3XL foot. She has size 13 feet. The comfort of these is incredible! They do not shift or slide down. You can make these as sedate or as cool and sexy as you like. In a silk knit they would make the most incredibly warm underwear for skiing!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes! Already have several more pair on the queue.

Cool, fun and funky! The foot is cleverly designed so that there are no seams to rub in your shoes. For those of us who are plus sized it is so fun to have the choices that smaller women have.
