Making decorative ruffles for designing clothes

in GEMSlast month

Hello Hiveians

Often times when I make new clothes and they appear too simple for my liking, I search for diy inspiration on how to add ruffles or any other decorative items on the cloth to make it more elegance.

For this blouse I was designing I bought organza and will be using them for this purpose.

Here is the finished edge of the blouse where I was adding the ruffles i add.

I made a 4inches cut of from the organza into long stripes

After cutting i folded each into two stitched and turned the closed end out.

This gave me a long stripe that I pleated round the base of the dress.

This can be done on any outfit using any different textile of convenience.
