Default ruffle leggins

I posted this in another category and apparrently it was the wrong one, because I had 72 people look at it with ZERO replies.

Ok, I was just searching the forum and found awesome pics of ruffle leggins that were made and I was just wondering if anyone has a tute that they are willing to share. I think I could figure out how to attach the ribbon to the leggings, but not sure how to finish the seam in the back.

Thanks,
Bobbi

If you posted a pic of which ones you'd like to do it'd be easier to give you some tips.

You'll turn one end in a little and overlap to sew across and then to sew them together , you will basically turn the other end of the ribbon in a little and then over lap them and sew a straight stitch KWIM?

Do you have to ruffle the ribbon before you sew it on????
You know, like in a tube?
Thanks,

If you plan on making quite a few, most sewing machines have a ruffler attachment you can purchase that ruffles and sews in one step. One of those things on my list to buy that I haven't gotten around to yet, lol.

I wouldn't suggest ruffling these first because the lycra is stretch, and you can't make these like ruffle jeans or pants because once you sew the ruffle it won't stretch over their foot!
I would suggest using this ribbon sock tutorial to help you, the only thing different about the bon bon ones is that she sewed them right side lycra to wrong side ribbon thats why you see the little ruffle at the top.

I would measure around the leg of the tights 3 x to figure the amount of ribbon you'll need.
