    Wonderful tutorial! I’d like to add, though, that to get even more fullness to a circle-ruffle, use more that one circle over the same stretch of fabric! It adds a gathering requirement back in, but you get both techniques in one ruffle making it EXTRA floofy :)

    Thank you for this tutorial! It’s really useful.

    I am not sure I understand step 8 though. What are you supposed to do after doing the zig zag hand stitching?
