bias cut ruffles

The skirt to the Summer Bustle is looking like a skirt - yay! I still need to sew on the fastenings and add some ties to bustle up the back but I got it hemmed - all important so I could do the calculations on the ruffles.


So I am now in the tedious and seemingly endless process of ruffle making. *sigh* Remind me again why I had to cut these on the bias? Oh yeah, 'cause they will look AMESOME! Hee.

Ack! Your picture is huge!

I really like the fabric, though. Did you ever decide on the lawn situation?

Yeah sorry - my computer freaked out decided it wanted to install some stuff and I had to restart before I could fix the mondo pic. Should be nice and small now...

I'm still pondering but I'm leaning toward leaving it alone. It is pretty if not quite what I've had in my head... :>

Because bias is super pretty and accurate?

This is going to be gorgeous!

Oooh! I'm loving the pretty checks! It's looking so elegant thus far... Good luck on all those ruffles (though it'll certainly look amazing in the end! ;)!

It's so pretty!! I'm currently scratching my head on ruffles, no ruffles, bias, no bias, blahblahblah! Can't wait to see the lovely dress in person!

Thanks! I know there are so many variations in bustle era trimming - it can get overwheleming!
