Late this evening I cut out the front and back skirts from the Sensibility Regency Dress pattern. I'm very lucky that the length of the skirts on the pattern are perfect for my height.
I made a cardboard template with the hem ruffle measurements, then chalked them on across both skirt pieces. Getting four rows of ruffles to sit neatly will be a challenge.
I have cut out the bias ruffles, so tomorrow's job will be to hem them, then attach piping and start applying them to the skirt.
