Terra from Mama Says Sew didn’t use pre-ruffled fabric to make these tiered ruffle leggings for her daughter. She created all of the ruffles herself and attached them to the leg pieces before stitching them up. By building the ruffled fabric herself, she was able to coordinate it perfectly with the top she made. She shares a tutorial showing how she did it. Go to her tutorial.
