I’ve been so low on blog battery these last few weeks. I start off the week with intentions & vague plans, but by the time Friday comes I’ve been all ready to collapse & indulge in TV & chocolate. Time of the year. That’s all. Not so chatty as usual. But I have faith that it’s the calm before the storm that is the party season ……
Anyway, I do have a castaway post to share, but you know me, I have a thing for posting on a Friday…& then the Fridays I’ve been feeling recently have been unblogworthy. So, watch this space! It’s a good ‘un.
Until then I’ve some leggings to show you. In reality I have numerous things to show you, but today it’s the leggings.
Question: What is it that is indispensable in running gear? I bet even non runners could make an educated guess for this one. Yes, a pocket that is secure for your door key. Enter the lace zipped pocket. The lace edged opti-zip from Coats.
I used this exposed zip tutorial on the burdastyle website – it certainly helped me to get my head around the process, never having done exposed zips before.
I fought with my coverstitch trying to get this pocket attached, straight & almost neat. And how could I have misaligned my waistband seams so badly? Showing it how it is dear folk though, sometimes it’s downright disappointing & dirty.
The pocket’s a bit scrappy to be honest, but I am hoping it doesn’t look too scruffy if I blur the focus in the photos??? And clearly the t-shirt obscures the misaligned centre back seams 😉
I added these ribbon bows as an accent to set off the yellow zip.
I have worn these a couple of times now & they are mega comfy to run in & the pocket does what it’s supposed to do – keep my key safe.
It’s big enough for a few other bits & bobs too, like some cash & the odd energy gel. And I l.o.v.e. running with red leggings, it’s a fact.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the mega dork photo shoot! The things I do for this blog ….
