Day 3 is up! We’ll tackle our tiers/ruffles today 🙂 I’m sewing up the mini and the ruffled high low, so you may have more tiers to attach than I do. Regardless, the process will stay the same for all versions.
Today is a little tedious, but not a “hard” step per se! Do take the time to gather neatly and consistently; it will make a big difference in the quality of your finished Siena.
Looking for other ways to gather? Check out our blog post here.
- Be accurate with your seam allowance
- Finish your edges to prevent fraying; I like to serge them, but you can also check out Dana’s finishing tips here.
- Get friendly with your iron; pressing often will make a big difference in how polished your garment looks
- Gather your tiers to the width of your skirt opening (or the bottom of the previous tier, if doing multiple tiers)
