Colorblock Pack Waistband Hack for the Original Peg Legs Pattern
So you love the new contoured waistband of the colorblock pack, but want to keep the legs quick and simple? Here’s the hack on how to use the original Peg Legs with the new colorblock pack waistband. You can use either the plain contoured waistband or with all the fun pockets too.
First, assemble the original Peg Legs pattern and Colorblock pack. You will only need the Colorblock Pack Back – 1 Piece. Aligning at the back rise and crotch curve, place back colorblock piece on the original Peg Legs pattern piece. Note, the pattern piece should align at the mid-rise cutline as the contoured waistband is drafted to fit the lower rise and finish high rise at the natural waist.
Trim the original Peg Leg pattern piece back rise or re-trace to create your new Peg Legs pattern piece.
Cut and assemble the legs as per the original Peg Leg instructions and using the waistband instructions from the colorblock pack. I used the back pocket option and our FOE hack for the version shown below.
Easy right?!? Now you can add an extra style of leggings to your closet. I especially love how the V back fits with the booty 😉 Don’t forget to share your version, we’d love to see all your Pegs!
Here are some links to all of our FREE leggings patterns, so you can get to sewing!
