I must have missed this when I read through the posts yesterday. I can't believe I missed it because I am all about leggings for lounging at home. These look so cozy and comfortable. I think the new waistband looks really well done. Very Nice!

Your recent leggings post inspired me to follow through with these too small sweats that have been in the stash for some time. It is warm enough here that these sweats / leggings will be packed up ready for next fall.
