We have these ridiculously cool, but way too small legwarmers at work (the "Leg Avenue Buttoned Spat Leg Warmers"). They are OTK length and too tight even on me. I cut them so they'd be knee-length on me, then used the short, cut off pieces as hand warmers, adding a lace ruffle along the cut edge and taking in the original elastic edge a bit to fit my arm. The part that stayed a legwarmer I sewed a little channel and strung elastic through, so they'd stay up.

Ah, you work at Sock Dreams? I just ordered a package from you guys earlier this week and it arrived yesterday -- so much faster than I expected! Yay for happy-making socks! And yeah, Leg Avenue's sizing is ridiculous... I used to work at a lingerie store that carried that brand... their underwear sets are even more ridiculous than the hosiery.

It's good to know we're not just crazy when it comes to Leg Avenue's sizing.

And yes! I am mad lucky to work at such a great place. It's awesome to hear that packages go so fast once they leave the warehouse!
