Your dress looks great! A jersey print? I have a pattern that has this type of design to it. Would you rate this technique as beginner, experienced, or difficult?

Aw Thank you! I would rate myself as a beginner who likes to challenge herself. But there would have been tears and shredded fabric if I'd tried to gather this slinky jersey manually... so Katrina's little trick and helpful tips were a godsend! It was originally neater and very regularly spaced, but I had to take the seams in another 1/2 inch so the gathers were caught in a bit unevenly... but I'm still very happy with the result!
