So, carrying on from where I left off last time… I bound the top of the petticoat after pleating:
I added a strip of fabric which was running stitched and I gathered it slightly so it ruffled a bit. This was turning out to be a ruffle-y, flowery petticoat.
It was modelled by Jeanette, my dress form. I needed a dress form and they are expensive to buy, so I used this: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Duct-Tape-Dress-Form
That is why Jeanette looks so tacky. Although, she’s almost more trouble than she’s worth. Only this morning did she split her front….
