View Full Version : Tights question - HELP! Need for Black Monday

08-27-2003, 12:22 PM
I need your help, ladies! This is for a NYRF Black Monday costume, so we all know how frantic I'm feeling... :shock:

I am in desperate need of a pair of cotton/lycra tights (leggings), the non-shiny kind, in women's size 12 or so (to fit waist 29" and hips 40", inseam 27" or longer) in OLIVE GREEN.

It's too late to order 'em from anywhere & get them in time; the leggings I ordered from Newport News turned out to be the wrong color, and I'm stuck. Eeeeep!

Anyone have any suggestions/ideas on what retail stores (like Fashion Bug, etc.) might carry these? Or does anyone know of any NYRF vendors that carry this color of tights?

Any help would be appreciated... thank you!

There's a dance store on Main Street in Somerville. They might have something or at least have an idea of where to look.

Or... what about buying white and dying them?

Andrea - thanks for the dyeing idea - it worked! I had a pair of light grey leggings - dyed 'em with Rit, and the color is close enough for government work.

Thank you thank you thank you!
