Greetings ! After searching the archives for ruching (draping ?)help I’m ready to just go with the pattern, as is, and not attempt this design change but hopefully someone here can lead me in the right direction. The pattern is Simplicity 5094 and has an empire waist. My daughter would like a semi-formal with the left side ruched.I have tried gathering one edge of the uncut fabric and then tried pleating it and can’t quite get the feel of how it should look. Does that make any sense. Could someone give me an idea of what I should be doing.
Excuse me for not introducing myself…Barbara from Texas, loyal Threads fan since issue 92, seamstress who is returning to sewing after 10 years, quilter, first time poster to the gathering etc.Thank you for your time !!BarbaraA
