Tights for amputees

Hi all. I know this may be a strange question but I am a double below knee amputee and wondered if any other amputees have any tips on tights to wear sans prosthetics? When I am in my chair if I wear shorts, dress, skirts etc.. I wear leggings but they can get too hot. Has anyone found any alternative? Or any advice on how to tailor tights to go over stumps? 

I orginally thought if I can get tights for teenagers maybe and hope I can find a good size but that doesn't seem to get me anywhere. 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am okay with sewing (shortening straps, fixing stitching that's come undone) so thought maybe someone in a similar situation had some thoughts. Thank you!!
