Well here is the ruffled top with the ruffled collar. It's made of the lightest cotton in soft blue.
For the top I didn't use any pattern. I just drew it with a chalk on the fabric.
The construction was quite easy, and the ruffles were fun to make.
The front part of the bodice is shorter than the back. Up front I added a ruffle in circles.
At the back I sewed three rows of ruffles and I like the effect they create.
And the rambling went on and on.... (Look at me! I am growing a tail! What am I to do with it?!)
Eventually, when it was finished and when I made a tiny belt for it she took all her words back.The photos are witness to it. She enjoyed the photo shoot - I didn't even have to bribe her. Now she thinks it's adorable and asked if she may wear this to school on Monday.
