Hey guys, I have a super easy hack to the new Peg Leg Add Ons for you today!
You will need to cut your side panel piece from the Peg Leg Add Ons twice the length.
Gather along side seams. I used two rows of stitches on each side to help keep gathers even (it’s also a safeguard just in case one of them breaks along the way!).
Gather the ruched piece to original length. I like to clip in the middle of each piece and then the ends before I begin to pull the gathering strings. This will help to keep your gathers even throughout the piece.
Lastly, attach your pieces like normal!
So simple and gives you a whole different look!
