I have four linen skirts made from this super-easy 8-gore pattern that I drafted from one of Mom's favorite old jean thrift store skirts. One brown, one periwinkle blue, one gray/green, and now - pink! With ruffles!
Perfect since I made it in time to enter the Ruffle Your Stuff contest! A double row of pleated ruffles finished off with a bias band of self-fabric. All skirt seams are flat-felled for zero fraying. (we don't want Henry Tilney to say it won't wash well, do we? In case you didn't know, he has such and understanding of linens, not just muslins...) Buttons up front placket with some little mother-of-pearl....well - buttons. Of course.
The ruffles I made with a handy-dandy 'ruffler' attachment on my vintage Singer 221 featherweight machine. It can be set for gathering or pleating.
Help! Death by ruffles!
The pieces of antoher handy attachment - the buttonholer!
Like it? I think it will look nice in summer with a floral tee and sandals, too!
