Hi, I’m trying to sew something similar to this dress, but I haven’t had any luck drafting or finding a pattern similar to the ruffle detail. Any suggestions?
Thanks! :)

    Use a similar fabric, same width, to make a mock up. Try this – Fold fabric in half. Place a half circle ( e.g. dinner plate size in half ) on the folded edge. Pin in place. Measure down from this the desired length of the ruffle (e.g. 8" ) Cut out this shape. Taking out the half circle too. Cut ONE SIDE OF THE FOLD FROM HALF CIRCLE TO OUTER EDGE. Hold it up and see what you have ! If it is not large enough then either try a larger half circle OR join two of the same together .
