I needed some more lace to add the the bottom of each leg piece so I had a tank top that was in the "use these clothes as fabric box" that had a light purple lace around the top edge. I cut it off right above the sewed edge. I folded it around the bottom of one of the leg pieces, added 1/4" and cut it to that length. I then cut one more piece of the lavender lace the same length.

I sewed each lace piece together using a 1/4" seam

Then I sewed on sewing machine first the pink eyelet trim and then the purple lace trim. I sewed a double seam on each trim.

|Pink ribbon hand sewed and tied in bow.|
I then cut two pieces of pink ribbon and folded them in half, marked the half spot, and handsewed each of those pieces of pink ribbon to the front of the purple/pink ribbon trim, in center of trim. I tied them into a bow and now have a pretty pair of leggings for my granddaughter Evangelyn.
Creating is definitely fun!
