I don't know how to use a sewing machine. Waaaaah? Yes, I sew everything by hand. I failed bobbins and try as I might, I still cannot master the art of sewing on a sewing machine. I chose a fun song for this post when the mice and birds help Cinderella sew here dress.
Trust me during the process of sewing this project, I wished I had a fairy Godmother who would magically finish the job.
I ordered six yards of my French script on a white background, per Sarah's request. The six yard were printed on Cotton Satin, and then I sewed the ruffle out of yards and yards of the same design printed on Cotton Voile.
I wanted it to look very Prairie Chic, so I added layers of crinolines underneath the design.
Sewing a ruffle by hand is a challenge, but little by little, week after week I kept sewing.
Then came the fun, when I could embellish the fabric with ribbons and lace.
I felt a bit like those little birds in Cinderella sewing the fabric.
