This is a great — and easy — way to change up the swing version of the Kirei. First, crop about 2″ off the bottom of the front and back pattern pieces. Then, after sewing the side seams, add a 3″ ruffle around the bottom edge. (See here for a tutorial on creating an exposed-edges ruffle just like this.) You can either hem the edges of the ruffle or leave them raw!
