In the july 2010 Threads, in the Q&A section there is a question about lettuce edge hems. I am making a flowergirl dress for my daughter to look like the attached picture. I am using Butterick pattern B4967, view B. The ruffles are going to be made out of poly. organza and I was wondering if the zig-zag technique discussed in the magazine would work. Also I have also read about using fishing line to get the ruffle. Has anyone tried this before? Do you just zig-zag over the fishing line? I was planning on doubling up on the pattern pieces (using a full circle for the front, and two half circles for the back half of the ruffle to get the fullness) Any thoughts....?
