White fabric! time for ruffles! ruffles >.> I hate doing ruffles. It probably took me about.. a good 3 hours to just do these ruffles. Yea given the first hour I messed up a lot. And the last two were distracting.. but it’s a long time for ruffles!!
So the pic to the right is what the ruffles looked like.. roughly. It’s blurry, sorry!
And the pic to the right. I tried getting the length of it shown. The ruffled side and the straight side is the same amount of fabric. So as you can see… always need double the amount of fabric xD
Oh and it’s smart to either fray check the edge before cutting, or after. In this case I didnt’ feel like it so I just used the zig zag stitch before ruffling it with a straight line of the regular stitching. so like…
The — is ruffled. the zig zag stitch I’m now lining all the fabric with to minimize fray. It’s an easier way to do so xD
Then I estimated lining up the ruffles. I saw it wouldn’t go all the way around so I did an extra little ruffles. turns out I didn’t need it!
And yea that’s a circle skirt. See the circle?
A closer pic on how I attached the ruffles. Nothing too special. I didn’t want any seams to show so this is what the inside looks like. You can kinda see the zig zag stitching I did there. These ruffles are pretty loose… they can be done tighter to get a more ruffled appearance. I’d recommend playing around with ruffles. you can make roses from them too!
And that’s basically the base~
I just need to add the white collar to the top part and trim up the white part on the sleeves then I’m done with the base ^^
I’m very happy with how it’s turning out. I still have to make some sort of petticoat though… or I may buy it.. what do you think?
I suppose it wouldn’t be so much work to make one of my Im-running-out-of-time petticoats xD Guess I’ll have to see later!
Now I’m going to put Alice to the side and start to work on my White Miku ^^ That’s a bit more important to me…
And XQ? Haven’t worked on that in a long time T.T At least I’m getting some stuff done!
