If anyone could help, it would be so very appreciated! (*O*)
If you mean the ruffs at the arms try this.http://www.elizabethancostume.net/ruffmake.html

If you mean the ruffles on the dress...It looks to me like a ruffle folded in half, stuffed with something light, like feathers, then folded in measure pleats and sewn on. The back back is similiar except a gathered train that maybe detachable.http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcar...p?productid=64 This is just an idea. Look at 1880's bustle patterns and fashion books for better ideas.

Does that help? or even make sense?
