Now we are going to create a gathering stitch to ruffle the top portion of the tier #2
Adjust your sewing machine to a stitch length of 5.
Top stitch along the edge of tier #2. I am using different color thread so you can see what I am doing.
Now you are going to ruffle the top of tier #2 to the length of tier #1.
You do this by pulling on the bottom thread and holding the fabric. As you pull the thread the fabric should ruffle.
