If you like ruffles theses are great. If you like Lolita these are great. If you like steampunk these are great. If you like gothic these are great. you could do so many colors and fabrics.
I used leftover linen, and some extra lace I had.
I did the ruffles by hand, but if you have a ruffler foot it would be so much easier. I'm looking into getting one.
Sorry no first pictures.
For the first ruffle:
I cut a rectangle of fabric 15in long, and 5in wide.
I'm allowing for an approximate 1/2in seam allowance.
After I hemmed it. I put my machine on the lowest (stitch tightness) setting, and the longest stitch length. i secured the first end and then sewed all the way across.
about a 1/4in down from that i repeated.
you then grab the end with the loose strings (just the top ones)
and pull evenly. gathering to make the ruffles.
make it to fit your wrist, i left a little unruffled to sit flat on my bottom wrist.
for the top ruffle:
this will be shorter than the first.
cut a strip about 9in long, and 3in wide. having a 1/2in seam for hemming.
Half an Inch down, sew your first line for ruffling, 1/4in from that sew the second. then pull evenly to ruffle.
I did make two.
the go great with long skirts and boots.
you could use whatever material, and could even to color combinations of the ruffles.
hope you enjoy.
