1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cascade Ruffle Panel? on: November 01, 2013 10:03:42 PM
Hello, I'm a fairly novice seamstress and this is my first thread here, and I'm in the process of making a full length dress from red and gold organza.
 I've made a 'fishtail circle skirt' overlay, i.e. a plain ol' circle skirt with non-centered waist, worn sidewaysish so that the short side is inline with one hip, and the longest side inline with the other
( I'm hoping my picture-less description makes sense, making up my own jargon as i go along. Undecided)
ANYWAY i plan on having another circle skirt underneath, but want to adapt it to have some kind of panel of cascade ruffles peeking through the asymmetrical overlay. The cascades i've seen seem to be either inbuilt in the pattern in a rather complicated manner (too hard for my poor drafting skills) OR sewn on afterward (i'm guessing the latter would be easier, so i'm leaning toward that). I've seen plenty of ruffles in this technique on toddler skirts, but i'm wondering how i would go about making large scale ones, and how i would add them so that they, well, "cascade" rather than look like random swirly bits I've sewn on in any which manner! Cheesy

thankyou!
