So, I'm going to do this really cool jacket based on a lolita dress (kind of as a first project Its the first clothing-item i've ever done, not including repairs. ) The whole thing reminds me of a tailcoat. The back is going to be embellished with three layers of ruffles (like, one long one on the bottom, a slightly shorter one on top of it, and then another shorter on on the top of that), and I'm haing trouble coming up with a way to do the ruffles, which I want to be longer in the middle, with it getting increasingly longer until the bottom layer is like a very rounded point. I have NO idea on how to do this! I came up with one idea that MAY work, but i want your opinions, too!!
Just for fun, here is a pic of the dress:
Okay, so this is how I want the ruffles to look (really bad drawing!!):
Oh, and each ruffle is going to be edged at the bottom with lace. Very fun.
So, this is my idea! (Also shown with a terrible drawing done in paint! )
I thought it might be kinda hard to sew the lace on when the cut of the fabric is sort pointed, though? What do you guys think? And do you have any better ideas??
