Grab a pair of leggings and fold them in half.

**Looks best with leggings that don't have a seam up the centre.**

Step 5: Cut Head Opening

Cut along the inside seam about 2 or 2/12 inches down each leg from the centre.

Cut out the seam along your new opening.

**Depending on how big or small you want your neckline, adjust the size of your cut**

I would suggest starting smaller as you can always make it bigger.

That's it!
