What are you most proud of? Figuring out how to do it - the dimensions and ruffle size. When I get the final pattern written up, I'll have two different lengths. I'm 5'9"- so I think this will be to long for some. But it's an easy fix.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a walking foot to make the ruffles. They go on a lot easier with that foot. And check out my blog entry on making ruffles: http://mselaineousteachessewing.blogspot.com/2012/04/ruffles-made-easy.html

I love this, I have been working on ruffles lately, I've made them from recycled tshirts- I really like the use of scrap fabric, Nice job.

Love that idea! I've got lots of colorful old t-shirts that need some help. You got me thinking!
