The VISIONS OF SUGARPLUMS pattern features gingerbread boys, sugar cookies, cupcakes, candy canes, gum drops, wrapped candy, and peppermint sticks all dancing on a dream weaving around the bottom of the skirt. The top is a purchased T-shirt embellished with appliqués and ruffles.
The ruffles in this pattern are made with a ruffler attachment and are cut on the bias so do not need to be hemmed. The Fluffy Ruffle Tutorial will guide you step by step thru the process of setting up and using a ruffler attachment. If you don’t have one, a ruffler can be purchased at your local sewing machine shop or online for about $20 – an investment well worth it if you like ruffles! Of course if you prefer, you can make the ruffles the traditional way - yardage is also given for ruffles cut on the grain and hemmed.
