What are you most proud of? I am very pleased with how the dresses turned out. The chiffon ruffles were easy to apply, but added tremendous "cuteness" to the dresses. I used the tension on my Bernina sewing machine to gather the ruffles. By tightening the upper tension slightly, the strips of chiffon ruffle automatically as you sew along the top of the strip. The amount of ruffle can be controlled with stitch length and tension adjustment.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Experiment with the ruffles to get the perfect amount of gathers. When you increase the stitch length, the amount of gathers increase. Increasing the tension setting also increases the amount of gathers.
