I was inspired by the style stalker snakebite legggings that were popular a little while ago
so just had to make an inspired version instead
I went and dug around my closet for some pleather leggings and it turns out the only plain pair I had left had some holes in some certain areas..
so I decided to chop the legs off and just make them into these legwarmer/ thigh high socks
there's a number of ways that you could go about doing this.
if you wanted a more polished look, you could use eyelets or eyelet tape
personally, I don't mind the rough unfinished look so I used the simplest method.
first you'll need rotary punch.
this is for punching in the holes
if you are going to be putting grommets as well, make sure that your hole is slightly smaller if your fabric is stretchy
then you take your leg and fold it in half where you want the lace up to happen
now you can mark and start punching the holes
when you're finished with the holes cut a line down the middle of the fabric to separate them
now lace them up!
for the string , you can use anything you want.
they should look like this
here I used shoe laces and the total amount of shoe lace I used is about 12 meters.
Around 6 per leg.
that being said everybody's height is different along with the space between each hole and the width separating each side
for reference, I am about 5'8 and the there is about an inch between holes.
now you're done!
