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.
