A Birthday Dress- Act Three

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.
