Repost: Peekaboo Ruffles Tutorial

Since Valentine’s Day is coming and some of you are probably thinking of making valentine’s outfits, I thought I would bring back this post from my old blog about how to add a tulle ruffle to your lining.

~~~~~~
I know I have been talking about these dresses for weeks, but I thought I would share how I made the ruffled lining in case anybody would like to try it this way. It was super easy! And I’ll definitely try this again in the future.

1. Cut your tulle in a long strip, fold it in half lengthwise, and run a gathering stitch through it– it ruffles right away. (Cut two strips. Ruffle each one).

2. Attach ruffled tulle to the lining, as shown on the picture, matching lining hem to the stitched end of your tulle.

3. Fold over toward the wrong side of your lining, and run a zigzag stitch to secure in place.

4. Using your zigzag stitch as a guide, attach the second ruffle on the right side of your lining.

I hope this serves as inspiration 🙂
