1 yard of their lovely ruffled goodness and 1 yard of matching colored elastic each! AND [I know, it just keeps getting better], for those who aren’t one of the 2 winners, they are offering 10% off your order [use promotion code 10percent]!
Supplies: Ruffled Fabric [1 yard] and elastic [1 to 1 1/2″ wide]
1-Making sure the bottom of your fabric is evenly cut, lining up the ruffles, cut two pieces on the fold, using inside out leggings as a guide, including 1/2″ extra for seam allowance.
2-I didn’t taper the bottom of the leg, and I cropped mine as well. [No need to hem it, yay!]
3-Open up both pieces, making sure all the ruffles are down, put right sides together [not shown] and stitch with a slight zig-zag from the waist to the crotch on both sides, as shown in the photo.
4-Pull the two seams together and stitch around the length of the legs, making sure ruffles match and are all facing down
5-Stretch a length of elastic around child’s waist. You want it snug. Overlap ends and zig-zag stitch.
6-Pin elastic on the inside [the wrong side], overlapping 1/4″. You’ll have to stretch the elastic a little bit to make it fit.
7-Zig-zag along the overlapped portion of the fabric.
8-Turn elastic under and stitch in the seam across the length of the elastic in front and back to keep the elastic down.
