Young Look – Sewing tutorial for boot leggings
Boots alone are already totally trendy. And anyone who wishes to be a bit more individual, wears leggings from fulled material. Which not only look good, but are also cuddly warm. The best for this is a 3/4-pants, then they are accentuated particularly well.

2 x outside back leggings part
2 x outside front leggings part
2 x internal leggings part
2 strips 10 cm long, 4 strips 17 cm long, 4 strips 50 cm long, each 2.5 cm wide
Cut 16 strips from valence insert, 1 cm wide and circa 35 cm long, sew each 2 strips together. Cut as replacement 8 strips from bodice strap.
Lay the two outer legging parts right side to right side on the inner leggings part and sew together. Spread the seam allowances, put on each a valence strip and stitch with extra-strong sewing thread on both sides at a distance of 1 cm (stitch length 4.5 mm), sewing on the valence strips. Arrange the facing and sew the fleece strip to the lower extension of the back leggings part. Sew the Velcro strip to the facing near the break line of the front leggings part.
From the cut strips, lay each 2 strips together and sew together with extra strong sewing thread and a narrow edge. Insert metal buckle on the 10 cm long strip, fold in half and sew under the front outer leggings part. Lay the facing towards the inside. Sew the decorative band along the edge of the seam onto the front leggings part. For this, sew the facing with it.
Sew 17 cm-long strips underneath on the inside leggings part, place the metal eyelet in the corresponding location. Also attach a metal buckle to the longer strip. Sew the strips on the back seam firmly and place the eyelet in the corresponding location.
