Leggings from an Old Sweater

I wanted to squeeze in one last sweater refashion before winter was over.  I made these leggings from a wool sweater I picked up at the thrift store for $5.  I used the sleeves for the bottom half of the leggings and used the bodice for the top half.

First, I chopped off the sleeves below the armhole.

Then I used the bodice for the upper half of the leggings.

Then I attached the sleeves to the leggings.
