But if you keep the top line straight wouldn't it go all funny when you sew it together?

I need to reupload it with a curved edge at the top..if you just made sure the side seam and top edge are at a right angle to each other should be all good.

Could this be also used for arm thingies like the Vocaloids have?

Indeed it can. Just measure your arm instead of ye leg, of course!

Hi
When you've made your pattern, the extra inch you add at the top is used to encase the elastic.
to insert elastic,
Take the legwamer ones you've sewn the side seams, (with the legmwarmer inside out) fold top of legwamer outwards and fold down by an inch. press with warm iron, then sew leaving about 1cm from the new folded edge which creates a tube to insert your elastic.
Also leave a 2-3cm gap when sewing so you can insert the elastic.
If that's too confusing I can do a quick tutorial on how to sew legwarmers if that helps. =)

Sweet, thank you so much! I can't find leg warmers anywhere, so it will be a while lot of fun making them. I know something like this is probably obvious, but I'm really new on sewing, though I did complete a nice pleated skirt. XP

Oh yeah, that bottom part that rests on your shoes on your denim leg, is that the same shape?

Thanks again! "3

??? It's part the leg warmer shape yars.. to do that you measure around 15-20cm from the hemline then draw in diagonal lines. i just used the right and wrong sides of the denim to make the stripes. If you would like me to put up a "demo" of how to modify the basic shape I can if it would make it easier to understand. =)
