yes! good advice, GRABthatUKE.
However, notice that the ruffles do not end in the center front, they continue to the bottom layer.
Here are some poorly drawn pictures that may help (not to scale):
This is what each of the two pieces attached to the front should look like.
The red line is the approximate attachment line for each of the front pieces. You should pin it and try it on before sewing to the shirt so you can easily make adjustments.
I hope this helps. Happy Crafting!
