leg warmers DIY from old pair of red tights

Yes, I wear pink shoes with black tights. Suck it.
The leg warmers are the easiest DIY ever: take a pair of red fashion tights, cut off the toe, cut across the thigh. Done. Makes a nice thin layering layer. My teacher thinks these look like the wrappings racehorses have around their ankles. Is this good or bad? Who knows!!!

    I like red and pink together, but only in a ballet context. I’m not sure why….I’d never really considered it until now.

    I think racehorses have pretty ankles—lean, strong, tendon-y, performance oriented—so I say this is a definite plus, right?

  4. Aside from loving your ballet outfit, I just have to say I LOVE your drawings! OMG, so cute! You should make cards or something! Love love!

    • A calendar. How hard would it be, AB?? A nice, ballet themed calendar for us to print and put in our desks at the office so people would ask “do you like ballet?” and we’d just roll our eyes and reply “isn’t that obvious??” while showing them our hair buns. The port de bras you drawed some time ago would be perfect for that! :)
      P.S.: make it for free just this time, please? You can charge us next time. :-D
