I used a piece I used a piece of white knit I got a garage sale for 50 cents. I cut two matching pieces to stitch together. If I was going to do this again I would sew the flower on first before ruffling. I didn't want the stitches to show through so that made it really challenging to stitch the flowers on. I used 3 silver pearl beads for the center of the flowers.
I had to practice the ruffles on a piece of scrap knit. I set the machine to a small zig zag stitch and 2nd to last length on my machine. I had to really stretch the material to get a good ruffle.
