It doesn't have to be perfect, unless you want it to be of course! Mine wasn't and it came out okay :-).

    I love that you made it so easy with step-by-step images! Thank you! Also, second the question above: if i need to make 30 cm of ruffles, how long should the original strip be?

      Thank you!
      Hm, I didn’t measure it, but I’m guessing about double the finished length.

    What a coincidence! I’m glad I dropped by this site, as I was making this myself this morning, to add to the upper and lower edges of a corset (at the R&D stage, so not decided yet), although I’ve come across a few problems on the way. Does the trim need to be cut on the bias, in order for it to better travel around curves and not pull/distort? Or – because it is able to move quite freely as its holding stitch is quite close to the raw edge – should it be able to behave itself nonetheless? I’ve had this problem with beaded trims, causing high hip and bust curved areas to really pull and pucker………..

      Sorry about the late reply! I didn’t cut the strip in the bias, but that might make it more flexible.

    I’m fairly curious as to the length of strip you need to cut to get approximate sizes. I’m sure once i draw it out on paper to think out my measurements I’ll have a better idea, but would it be possible you to clarify?

      You should probably start with three times the length you want to finish with. (If you look at the picture, every part of the trim has three layers)
