1  Re: How do I make this ruffle? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by GreyAward on: January 28, 2010 08:26:50 AM
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!

Well that is a poorly worded description, isn't it? Sometimes I wonder what the people that write these are smoking.
I think they want you to baste stitch each side of the center seam. This will prevent the fabric from stretching and wiggling while you are sewing the seam together.
Basically you'll sew a line on each piece 1/8'' inside the seam allowance. That way, when you sew the center seam the basting will be hidden inside the garment.

Here is a poorly drawn picture that may help.
The redish line will be your center seam (usually at 5/8'')
and the blue line will be your basting stitch (probably at 4/8'')

I hope this helps. I'll be checking back in case there are any more problems or I'm wrong about what they mean.
Its a really cute pattern, don't get discouraged!
Happy sewing!
