Fabric mart has a fabric here that I love! How on earth do you sew this?? Hem this? I am thinking a long dress, sheer sleeves but hems and finishes, have no clue! I have not purchased yet.

Well, you will need to figure out the best way to layout and cut your garment based on how the ruffles run...it looks like they run lengthwise. I would try to have any hems end where they can be turned up/sewn under a ruffle maybe. You might have to match ruffles at side seams etc. It's possible to remove a portion of the ruffle, if needed, and sew it back on after you sew your seam etc. You should probably purchase extra yardage than what your garment calls for.
It would just require a little extra thought here and there but you could do it!

I think something real simple with hardly any seams would be best. I probably would try not to have those ruffles on it to even be caught up in any seam actually. To do that, I might lay it out, but before actually cutting it out, detach part of the ruffles in the seam allowances area and way beyond even and then cut it, sew it, and then piece the loose part of the ruffles there together, and more apply just those parts of them, over the seam, and on top of it, that I had already sewed.

That would be a lot more work though. Doing that on somethings, made of it, might be worthwhile though, in end final look of it also.

I'd only use that as an accent with a solid fabric (non-ruffle) as the main part of a dress. Am thinking only the front bodice of a simple dress or top.
