Sometimes I feel the need to get down to 'business' and make stuff I really really REALLY need. So a few weeks ago, I made a few new pairs of leggings, this one of Bamboo Knit. I used the Baseware One pattern from Christine Jonson. I've had this pattern for years, and love it (the top and bottom) for yoga and 'first layer' wear. The bamboo fabric is warm to wear without being heavy, drapes wonderfully and feels very soft but not flimsy next to my skin.
It has been colder than usual this winter, where I live on the east coast of the US. So these come in handy under pants, jeans, and skirts.
I use a really soft waistband elastic, 1 inch in width, so that the waistband is not too stiff under my other clothes.
