I wear my one brown pair that I got from Old Navy the year before last for $4.50 at least 3 times a week.
I know. I need more.
I saw these photos on Pinterest and fell. in. love:
Looove the sock thing.
Problem- my boots are rather snug. I don't think I can fit socks over leggings in there. So, I decided to make some faux socks out of old sweaters, a.k.a "Knee Warmers".
Here is how:
First, grab an old sweater. We are going to take advantage of those already-sewn side seams and finished edges. It's practically impossible to "hem" cable knit.
|I already cut off the sleeves and neck|
In order to have nice, finished edges on the inside of your warmers, we are going to sew french seams.
Don't freak out. They are super easy. With wrong sides together (I know, that seems wrong- it's not), sew a 1/4in seam down the side (I serged it).
Flip them inside out and, along that same side, sew a 3/8 in (or larger) seam. This will "encase" that previous seam.
Flip right side out again. Tada!
Sweet! Put them on right before boots, leave the zig zagged edge down in your boot, like this:
|I look like I have the chubbiest legs ever! Hmmm... need to work harder on that!|
Loooooove it, even though it looks totally homeless under neath. Haha.
