Today, I’m going to show you many many types of ruffles. Ruffle variety is nearly endless, and, as a design element, they can say anything from ‘sweet and fun’ to ‘classic and strong.’ Being armed with a vast repertoire of ruffle variations allows you creative freedom to always choose the perfect one for any garment. Your ruffle choice may depend on how much flow/fullness/buoyancy/discretion you want, or how much fabric and/or time you have. Keep the ratio of gathering in mind when experimenting with ruffles; this will help you cut the right lengths for the desired fullness when making your final pieces. I’m also going to show different ways to finish the edges of your ruffles.
