It's me again. If I don't want to use the circle piece in the pattern and just want to cut a strip of cloth and gather it to go around the neckline would I want the piece to be 1.5 times the neckline or 2.5 times the neckline?

TIA

I would make it the longest choice and baste in place to see if you like the look.  You can then adjust if necessary.

If you have enough fabric, you might cut the ruffle (straight flounce) on the bias.  It will gather softer and lay flatter. Bias ruffles are particularly attractive in plaids, checks and stripes.

Bias is almost always prettier!  Bows especially always tie better and lay nicer when on the bias.

If the fabric is thin, cut the ruffle double and use the fold for the outer edge instead of hemming.
