    I like the technique, but, technically, these aren’t ruffles. Ruffles are gathered. These lovely things don’t have that sort of bulk at the top; the circular cut means they’re actually flounces. Ever thought of using them on a V neck, or along a front placket?

    The ruffles are sewn directly onto the skirt in layers using a straight stitch. They are only attached to the back of the skirt.

    In the picture it really doesn’t look as if the ruffles were attached to each other cos you can’t see the stitching on the upper ones. What stitch did you use?

    Each ruffle is the same size. I started from the bottom attaching each ruffle on top of each other.
