Aprroximate Finished Measurements
I suggest you read the entire pattern once before starting to get a general idea.
All the fabrics used here are of 44/45 inches width.
The fabrics shown here are only for illustration purposes and as such may vary from the original.
All seam allowance is 3/8-inch unless otherwise specified.
*You may opt for one, two, or three layers of ruffles to suit your taste. Here I show you a sample with three layers of ruffles.
* Let’s name the ruffles one, two, and three, starting from the smallest for convenience.
*In the table below, I have given the requirements for the three ruffle layers separately. If you opt for the same fabric for the three layers, add up the requirements of all the three layers to get the total requirements.
*In the table below, “W” stands for the width of the fabric and “L” for the length.
Let’s put the pant pieces together.
Let’s move on to the ruffles.
Take the fabric strips required for the ruffles (Below, I have shown the third one). We first need to do the lower hem of the ruffle.
Repeat the same to get the remaining two ruffles. Let’s put the three ruffle pieces together.
Let’s gather the ruffle. We turn the upper thread tension of the machine to zero and stitch length to the longest to get a basting stitch.
Repeat the steps on the other ruffle pieces.
Let’s attach the ruffle layers to the pants. Turn the pants over to the right side and the ruffle layer over to the wrong side.
Repeat the steps with the other pant leg and the other set of ruffles.
Let’s do the elastic casing for the waist. * The two pictures below are for illustration purposes.
