Of course, when I said I didn't know how to figure out how much fabric I need for ruffles, what I meant was, I don't have all the numbers I need to figure out how much fabric I need for ruffles. I know how, of course.

I started cutting out my underskirt last night. I started out by blithely assuming that the skirt would be the right size, because they're the same pattern pieces I traced off for my CU gown, and it fit. Also, I couldn't immediately spot where I'd written sizes on the pieces, so I didn't know what size they were anyway. Temporary blindness, as I spotted after cutting out three panels. It was, in fact, a large (which astonishes me - I don't see how, looking at my CU pics, I could be defined as large). I whipped out my tape measure, whipped out my corset for good measure, and discovered that I should have been cutting out a medium, corsetted or not. oops?

Luckily, what I had cut out was easily cut down by a size. It did mean, though, that I didn't finish cutting it all out, and the rest is folded on a chair in the sewing room. And then I decided that I wanted the bottom ruffle to be pleated, not gathered, and I wanted it much denser than it was in my CU gown... Poor Jarratt became my math-assistant, who noted lengths down and did math for me while I set about determining whether I had enough fabric to make the ruffle MUCH longer than the pattern had allowed for it to be. I do, I'm pleased to say. I'd rather be at home continuing work on this than here at work! More tonight, I think. ^__^
