Project: Zippered Leggings

Trend: Zippers

I was lucky enough to be asked by Everyday Fun Facts to write about my favorite fashion must-have.  Obviously this was a very difficult choice; there are so many parts of fashion that feel necessary.  But there has been one fashion staple that has been standing out to me this season.  That staple is leggings of course!  I haven’t jumped onto the legging bandwagon until pretty recently.  Now that I have fully committed to this fashion regular, I have found them to be useful in almost any situation.  I have worn leggings to sleep, to the gym, to work, out on the town and when just lounging around at home.  Nothing can beat these things!  Did I mention all leggings are super comfortable?

I was thinking of a way to make my leggings a bit more personalized.  How can I add some legging flair while still looking fashionable?  I thought, why not add a flashy zipper at the bottom? This DIY is super easy and super affordable.  I got the zipper at a nearby craft store for under $3.00.  So, are you ready to make your average pair of leggings look designer? Join me in my tutorial below to see how, and as always-happy sewing! 🙂

    Excellent post! Definitely inspired for some DIY fashion fun. Quick question- do I need a sewing machine for this or can I sew by hand? Any particular brand of zipper better than another? Love this 🙂

    • Thank you Tania! I sewed everything by hand, and I just happened to get lucky at the craft store. They had the kind of fashion zipper I was looking for. Any brand should be good though, I have never had any problems with zippers. Hope that helps! 🙂

    I’ve just got into leggings too! These are great for taking them away from running errands, though they would look cool running errands! I love how you put the zips on the inside seam rather than the outside!

    What a wonderful idea, Lauren! I sew sometimes, I might re-evaluate my existing leggings to see if there are any worth changing up a bit! Thanks for sharing this post! 🙂 x
