I'm afraid I've overdone it on the ruffles.
As I said in my last post, I let the fabric decide the width of the skirt, and eyeballed a couple of pattern envelopes on line. I could have asked any one of the very friendly blogging sewists out there, but the laziness won out.
So heres a close up of the ruffling;
male pattern boldness is making a skirt which has a width of just over 2 metres.
So now it seems, instead of finishing the dress today I'm going to be pulling it apart, measuring, ruffling and reattaching the skirt. -Sigh-
Can someone tell me I should keep the width?
Better now than laterI guess.
Here's the dress as a puddle. Isn't it pretty?
