Project

Ruffle Top

What are you most proud of? Well, I am not adept with my ruffler attachment so had to do the ruffle the old-fashioned way, with gathering stitches. The stiffness of the organdy made it a bit cumbersome but it turned out okay. What advice would you give someone starting this project? To make this dress pattern into a top, you need to fold out a lot of fullness. I also had to add 2 dead darts in the neck edge to eliminate gaping. Other than that, it was easy peasy.

You Can Make This

Cissie made Ruffle Top with:

  • White shirting with Swiss organdy for the collar
