Ruffles on skirts seem to be amazingly populart these days, and being something of a trendwhore, my next skirt is going to be all ruffley.  I want to do a fairly deep waistband, and then a single layer of ruffles beneath that.  I don't have a ruffle foot, but I do know how to make nice even ruffles without one, and I know how to set it in the waistband so that the ruffle layer sits nice and flat.  Here lies the problem: I don't have a pattern.  I can make most of it up easily, but I am stumped by one little thing.  When I cut the lower layer, the ruffled one, what shape should it be?  Should it be a straight rectangle, or more of a trapezoid?  If the trapezoid idea is the way to go, does the longer end become the top of the ruffle or the hem?  I'm not making this a particularly puffy skirt or anything, so I don't want the hem end to be big.  I just don't really know for certain how to balance a ruffley skirt with a non-poofy skirt.
Thanks all!

Also, I said ruffle 9 times there.  I consider that quite a feat. Smiley
