So now it's ruffle time. I pull the ruffle really tight so it fits on the pant leg, then pin it on right sides together, and sew.
Isn't this adorable?
Then I had to rip it out because I forgot that the black & white is going to be the top ruffle, not the bottom one. See, everyone makes mistakes. I have callouses from my seam ripper. It gets more action than a Playboy owned by a 14 year old boy. So I then just repeated the same with the pink ruffle.
Ta da! Finally, we're off to the right start.
What I don't have a picture of right now is the other leg; when I finished, there were spots where the lace wasn't long enough to reach the top ruffle. Did I redo it all at that point? Hell no. I added a row of black rick rack to the bottom of the lace on each leg. We're already pretty far gone on these pants, it's not like one more element was going to put it over the top or anything. Check it out in the very last pic.
Time to start the shirts I guess. See what happens? You do all this work on the pants just to have to start all over again with the tops. Okay, here we go.
