Margiela Legging Ladder

Yet another underpatch/ sashiko arrangement, this time protecting/embellishing the knee of a Maison Martin Margiela legging I love that had laddered because, honestly, this stuff is like tights. What is good about this, which you can't really tell from the pic, is that the underpatch is a gorgeous piece of pure 1980s silk lamé--it looks shiny because it is really very shiny indeed.
