Act One- Cut out the skirt.
Act Two- Serge the skirt pieces together.
Act Three- Stitch the gathering threads.
With the blessing of my new machine also came the ability to continue working on Andra’s dress! So, one of the first things I did was to put the gathering threads in Andra’s skirt ruffles. There are miles and miles of ruffles but it’s going to be gorgeous when I get them done.
Did you know that ruffles require upper body strength and that you will get a work out (that some of us need but shouldn’t have) just by pulling the little suckers. I pull a section and then put it away… for several hours. I expect to be able to move onto Act Four sometime this week. Lord willing.
