What are you most proud of? The fact that the ruffles turned out! Hand dusted them with a light pink pearl dust. Pulled the ruffles thin as Maggie demonstrated, which worked well, they didn't feel heavy. Just happy that it all worked! Loved the class!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience, and be SURE to give yourself more time than you think it's going to take - it's a very time intensive project creating the ombre ruffles, but well worth it!
