Tutorial : Simple Leg Warmers by taeliac Tutorial : Simple Leg Warmers by taeliac
Well, as Halloween is coming up, I thought I would get a simple accessory tutorial up for you guys, that might help with your costume! They work wonderfully as a substitute (or cute accessory) for a school uniform, they also work for a kitty outfit, most Lolita outfits (please note: this might not be quite "in fashion" now, or readily accepted by the EGL community - do some research first so no one says anything :3), and stuff like that. Also, if you substitute a few measurements, they work wonderfully for arm warmers as well!

I had Illustrator open for working on those Sew Village characters, so I did this one in Illustrator - changed the uploaded image from a PNG to a JPG, hopefully, it looks nicer now...

Anywho, a simple tutorial for how I make my leg warmers. They're usually made of fleece or knit, but if you're making it out of a non-knit fabric, read the note at the top about adding extra.

I hope this helps you all out a bit! Happy (early) Halloween :D

hi! i'm sorry, this is probably a very dumb question.. when you take the "width" measurement of the calf... do you mean diameter? like, wrap my measuring tape around my calf to get the measurement? thanks for your help! this is a fantastic tutorial!

Oh dear... I was thinking of this for Amu Hinamori, but as a Lolita I need to correct you! Leg warmers are greatly frowned upon within the EGL community! If you'd edit the description, I'd be eternally grateful. The last thing I want is some poor new Loli to come to a meet with these leg warmers and get teased for being "ita!"

Really? Because I see them everywhere here, and in groups or lots of shops. Plus, I did this... heh, like 5 years ago, when it was uber popular to wear them with loli outfits even in the states.

I have a feeling that if someone was showing up to an EGL community meeting or something, they probably already know what's currently "in" or "acceptable" for it, but I will add something in anyways :3

Thank you very much for this! I'm doing an Equestria Girls cosplay and their shoes/socks have such a weird shape, but these leg warmers are the perfect solution for it!
