THEN – the box-pleated row ruffle was added on top – opposite side of the fabric ‘up’. The ‘ruffle’ was really box pleated row of trim – cut about 2.5″ wide, cut edge ‘finishing’ both edges. If I were going to mark and stitch all that, I would certainly make use of the Simflex Gauge to do the marking – as this wonderful crazy tool automatically evenly spaces things.
Look at the collar – it appeared to be a double layer – with ‘wrong’ or light sides together, simply stitched about 1/4″ away from all the edges.
Next, check out the little gathered ruffle, raw edge, stuck into the top of the sleeve cap seam. Then, the diagonal row of embellishment down the center fronts appeared to be a hand-whipped strip of rolled fabric.
Finally, up the Center Back, it was stitched wrong sides together, seam allowance exposed on the right side to emphasize a nice slimming vertical line. RAW edges again!
