Quick tip!

I did a 5/8 of an inch seam allowance BUT you can go much MUCH smaller ~_^ just make sure that you dont sew them too close! *made that mistake to many times -_-;*

If you haven't already you should make a tutorial on how to measure the amount of fabric you need for ruffles when applying them to a costume.

I used a thin cotton, usually for me the thinner the fabric the better.

Hi! I was trying to sew ruffles today, but I can't pull my thread. I set the stitch to the longest setting on my machine, but I can't pull.

I feel sooo bad for replying this late but you need to have your tension and stitch as loose as possible. That way its easier to pull both threads.

It depends on what type of fabric you are trying to ruffle. I would suggest a poly/cotton blend because its stronger when you pull it. I hope this answered your question! If not please write again hahaha and I will try to answer a bit better.

Do you by any chance know how to make the comic book style wrist ruffle cuffs? I know how to make ruffles like this (excellent tutorial on how to do it btw!) but I'm yet to figure out those jester-like concertina ruffles that stick out from the wrist.

For crazy ass ruffles like that I would suggest that you use a REALLY stiff fusible interfacing not sew in I always had the problem of it ripping and being like WAY to stiff to do anything. The fabric you might want to try would have to be something heavy weight or bottom weight aka heavy cotton/polyester. Also you are going to want to get some different types of interfacing since they can dramatically change the look and weight/feel of the fabric your using and they might also weigh each other down in which we are NOT looking to do that!
For the super ruffly look you will want to do the tightest stitch possible to create the shape and keep it and make sure to double and sometimes triple what fabric you would originally cut out since creating ruffles tends to eat up any fabric really fast.
So I hope my random rambling helped somewhat!
Also I would love to see what you come up with :D

Thank you so much, this is great. I didn't think it would be this easy. Well, I thought it would be very difficult. I guess it's not that easy. Haha! Well thank you because I am a huge fan of ruffled outfits.

this is really cool! But this technique is called "rouching" (i think thats how you spell it....) You can also make ruffles by just making one line of basting stitches and pulling and then tying off your threads :)
Really nice tut! Thanks!!! :D
