It is late spring here and daily temps are ranging from about 28 to 32 degrees Celsius, so my daughters skirt obsession is not a problem. She has a mixture of mum made skorts (from our Hoola Hooper Skort) and skirts, that are affectionately known around here as fru fru skirts (think tulle). She is a happy girl.
At the start of winter though, it was a different story. Each morning I would insist that my daughter wear something practical and warm to daycare, and each morning she would respond with floods of tears insisting on a dress or skirt and a hand knitted cardigan.
I gave in and purchased more knit cardigans for daycare, but we managed to come to a compromise on the skirts/dresses.
I put together what I am calling Skeggings (skorts with leggings). These have served us wonderfully all throughout the winter (it doesn’t get very cold here) so I thought I would share.
The Hoola Hooper Skort does not come with an option for leggings so I have drafted one that you can use with the Hoola Hooper Skort, but it is also a great legging pattern in it’s own right. So if you don’t have a go to legging pattern you are in luck.
Here are a few tester pics of the leggings, some with the skirt and some without:

If you make some leggings or skeggings, be sure to grab some pics and hashtag them #sew4bub I would love to see your creations!
As always, thanks for reading.
