Then, ruffle up a bunch of knit fabric. I cut mine to 2″ wide and used my ruffler foot to put in a gentle ruffle. The great thing about using a knit for a ruffle is you don’t have to finish the edge!
Cut the strip into pieces and lay them on the front of the dress. You can very the lengths of each ruffle as you want.
Then pin the bottom layer on a sew it on with a straight stitch, backstitching at the ends.
Repeat for each layer, working your way up.
When you get to the very top layer, match the top of the ruffle to the neckline and sew on where the ruffling stitch is.
