Adding the Ruffle

So you made the bottom ruffle twice as big as the top skirt, but I'm curious, what about was the difference between the bodice and the top skirt? A rough idea would be fine. I only have one go at this, and I want to make sure it's not too crazy gathered in the waist.

Hi so if you look at the simplicity 8013 pattern I used as a basis for this, that's what determines the bodice and skirt parts. There are line diagrams for this pattern available online. My front is not gathered because it's wrapped over and sits relatively flat, it is gathered more at the back and I've deliberately done mine to be more gathered centre back. Tulle sits relatively flat, even when gathered because it is so light, so this also depends on your fabric.
