[NO PATTERN] Not the biggest or fanciest project, but I’m so proud to announce that in 3 hours of work I was able to create this petticoat to put under my WW1 nurse dress. The ruffles are 6m of fabric ruffled to fit the 3m bottom border of the skirt… all that without making any mistake… yeay

    Done it with a simple white cotton fabric, no pattern used, just need to know how to do a circle skirt, just an elastic at the waistband to avoid it falling. Not that pleased with the tightness, but if I make it tighter, it won't pass my butt or my shoulders when I put it on haha. For the ruffles, I just marked 8 evenly spaced point on both the skirt and the stripe of fabric, connected them and try to ruffle as evenly as possible between the marked points
