Addicted to ruffles
I made one of these last year, but I didn't achieve the desired level of gathered fluff and I wrestled with a so-so ruffler foot. This time, I took a simpler approach. I gathered by bunching the fabric as I pushed it under the presser foot. You know what? It worked pretty well!
I use the instructions from Kari Mecca's Princess Pettiskirts pattern.
The satin for the yoke is crepe-backed satin from Joann's. I hate costume satin - too slippery.
The chiffon was purchased in rolls, and I had so much fun making this I just might order some more...
