This tutorial begins at the point in your pattern where you gather one piece and attach it to another. So you'll have the shorter piece (like a waistband) and the longer piece (like a skirt or ruffle). The longer piece will have two rows of gathering stitch on it, as shown here.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
