Step 9 Frills

Remove fabric threads from lengthwise edges of frills to fringe edges approx. 5 mm (3/16 in) wide. ­Gather short frills along centre to a length of approx. 17 cm (63/4 ins). Lay frills on front neck edges, from shoulder seams. Hand sew centre of each frill in place, approx. 3 cm (11/4 ins) from neck edge. Gather longer frills along centre to a length of approx. 47 – 49 – 50 – 51 – 52 cm (181/2 – 191/4 – 193/4 – 201/4 – 201/2 ins), leaving bottom end of narrower frill un­gathered, approx. 5 cm (2 ins) long. Lay narrower frill on left half of neck edge and pin in place, twisting frill a few times. Frill ends approx. 2 cm (3/4 in) from centre back. Hand sew cen­tre of frill in place, approx. 1 cm (3/8 in) from neck edge. Sew ­wider frill to right half of neck edge in same manner.
