Ruffles!

My youngest daughter’s friend has just had a baby girl so I thought I would make her a little romper suit I used a KwikSew pattern 4094 I love creating ruffles… I use my overlocker to create the gorgeous rolled hem edging and gathered the ruffles using my ruffler foot for y sewing machine…such a brilliant gadget. I was a bit worried that I’d gather the piece too much as it was a circle of fabric. I needn’t have worried, I set my stitch length to maximum, 5 on my machine, and made the ruffles slightly less gathered than I needed. I practiced the amount of gather first šŸ™‚ I could then pull up the threads to make the ruffle fit the circumference of the romper. It’s quite addictive! I had a bit of trouble understanding the directions for the elastic in the back waist But it all turned out beautifully Now I have a need to make more ruffles…!
