Cesky Brod, Czec...
I made these for my prom/graduation ball, to go with my dress that I made (eventually I’ll post the dress as well, but right now I don’t have any decent pictures of it and it needs some small alterations, that I just quickly corrected the evening…). I followed the tutorial at http://www.roserushbrooke.com/how-to-ruche.html , but I changed the process a bit – those look more like dahlias, I made the strips shorter and used them in two layers, one smaller. On the bottom there stayed visible stitches; I used those for putting the pins in. I was thinking about adding some beads to the middle, but then I decided this way it was rich enough.
