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.

Thanks for viewing my blog, its all about designing and creativity and of course making a living from fashion business.
