What materials did you use? Linen like woven in black and white pattern

What are you most proud of? The fit and finish of the blouse. I used to French seams to create a clean interior finish as the fabric frayed excessively.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The ruffle was the most difficult part of the project. Achieving a clean 1/8" rolled hem on the ruffle was difficult even with a rolled hem presser foot. There is a great tip on Threads magazine for using paper to roll hem that is worth trying.

Wondeful. Love the ruffle.

Thanks. The ruffle was tough to do. There is a great tip on Threads on rolled hems that's worth looking at, if interested.

Thanks for the tip. I've got several ruffle sewing projects on my list. Can't decide which to do first.
