Graffiti, en français

French Graffiti Ruffle Dress

A lesson in changed plans. I had intended circular ruffles for sleeves and along the hem for a 1920s look. However, they did not get the fullness or drape that I wanted, so I removed and recut them to add to the ruffle along the neckline. With the 20s thing not working out, I went for something a little more cocktail party-esque. I must say, I did a pretty great job of fitting everything, ecspecially since I don't have my drafting textbook at the moment. I still need some practice on placing the armholes, I can never cut them right on the first try.
