I am working on a possible bridal dress for my soon to be sister in law and she wanted to do something like this on the skirt:

I have never done this sort of technique with the chiffon before and would love to know where to start to learn how to do this. I have not committed yet unless I can figure out a test run with the technique.

Thanks for anyone who can point me the right direction!

    Those look like circular ruffles rather than gathered. To make them have body like these ones, you’d need to do them in organza rather than chiffon.

    Thanks, I started thinking that after I made the post. So for this would you really just start playing with the ruffles and just see where they go to product the look?

    I’d probably start with an A line skirt base to pin them to, but yes, basically.

      You will need a HUGE yardage of fabric to make something as fluffy and full as the original. Just warnin’ ya… ;)
