    I echo “MerBecky” I was hoping to read the description and find out where I could obtain this pattern. The cut is perfect – just enough detailing to be sofistocated and chic! You did a great job, I am impressed with anyone who can drape sleeves. Have you been trained in draping?

      I only have a pattern that I created for my size, but I need to figure out how to size it to other sizes before I can share it with you guys. I am studying fashion design right now at Parsons, so this was a project for my first draping class.

    This is beautiful!!! I was hoping that you would say you went out and bought the pattern so that I could make one for myself. I’m really impressed that you made the pattern yourself. Great job!

      Thanks! Hopefully I can learn to create a pattern for different sizes eventually. I will share it when I do.

    That’s beautiful! It has such clean lines too, like the collar which works so well with the ruffle. And it’s not too ‘ruffly’ either,a fantastic design!

      I am still in the process of learning how to create a proper pattern and I need to learn how to size it. I will let you know when it is created.

      The ruffle is shaped like a donut on the pattern. The inside circumference of the donut should be the length of the edge you want to sew the ruffle onto. I made this cascading ruffle 4 inches wide, so the donut is 4 inches wide from the inside circle. Add seam allowances and cut 2 and sew them together and iron flat before sewing it onto the edge you want to attached the cascading ruffle to. Hope this makes sense!
