What are you most proud of? Making something cute and useful and using up some of the stash! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make the last ruffle sit ABOVE the hem - it's really hard to deal with the loose ends of the ruffles neatly when four are in the seam allowance and one is not - I pinned it out of the way while sewing the lining on, then had to handstitch it to make it sit in the triangle shape to look as though it fits the curve of the dress. I also cut my threads off one of the ruffles to early and had the unsecured ends unravel - if only it hadn't been the very top one! So my advice is, don't trim any thread tails until they are in their final resting place and stitched down firmly!
