I made these crochet warm-up shorties!
They’re slightly adapted from a pattern in Geek Chic Crochet by Nicki Trench. (A lovely Christmas present from my step-mum.)
I made the legs much shorter, and the waist much higher in order to cover the whole of my pelvis, and kept the scallop detail to just the legs. The ribbon is grosgrain and keeps fast in place throughout class (tested!). They’re bulkier than the fine-knit shorties you get from, say, Harmonie, but the custom fit means my bum is satisfactorily covered – a problem for me with dancewear made for the traditional ballet dancer shape! – and much more importantly, the hip flexors are kept super toasty warm.
I celebrated with a cheeky photoshoot at the Royal Opera House.
