Definition: Peg or Pegging

The term “Pegging” refers to narrowing  the garment at the hem.  For instance, a skirt that is narrower at the hem than at the hip is “Pegged”.

Pegging hint:  Do not sew a seam straight past the hemline fold. A seam should be tapered out at the hemline, especially if the skirt or pant is narrower (pegged) at the bottom, so that the edge lays smoothly.
