MODULE 1 • Mapping the Gesture & Cascade Ruffles

Step Description
1 Start this lesson, by mapping the skirt, beginning with the plum line. Add the left and right-side of the skirt next.
2 At the skirt centerline, add the flow of the cascade ruffles, as demonstrated. Notice how the ruffles narrow as they reach the hem of the skirt.
3 Now, add a flow of cascading ruffles to the skirt’s left-side, again, narrowing their width as they reach the hem.
