Step 1: 1.Begin by drafting the pattern.
Measure new neckline. Neckline minus 1/7th will give you the length for the neckline hem.
Measure the garment hemline. Remove 1/7th from this measurement for hem length.
Draw a straight line of 30cm on the pattern paper. Measure 5cm from one edge and square out. Measure 4cm out from centre. Join points to the end to form the ruffle. Mark “fold” at the 5cm width end.
Finish pattern with appropriate markings.
Step 2: 2. Cut the garment pieces
Mark out the length of the neck and hem finishes. Include seam allowances and double the depth of the fold. Cut on the fold. Remember to add any seam allowances.
