Default Re: Any tips on making this?

here is some help with the bottom ruffle
Sewing Ruffles and Gathers - How Ruffles Are Gathered & Formed
the top part of the dress looks pretty simple- just a 2 1/2 inch hem leaving one side open *you can use one piece of fabric having the seam in the back to add the elastic or do side seams?- then sew a shoot for the elastic (like the top of a curtain) leaving about 1/4 inch at the top so it will look ruffled -Basically it is a tube,because it is a jumper style and the ribbons are used for the ties(makes it much easier)-insert the elastic then sew the open side up and add your ribbon ties. The pants are just elastic waist capris with the ruffled bottom. HTH as I am not that great with giving written directions...LOL
