Light, vintage-like ruffles on this soft, pink shirt.
A ruffled sleeve takes this basic tank up a notch. (or a few)
This next one is my favorite.
I bought this trim at Harts today. I couldn’t find it on their site, but if you call, they have it. It is so hard to tell from the pictures, but it is full of texture, elasticity and varied colors. I wrapped it all the way around the back of the neck. For whatever reason, I don’t like when ruffle stop at the top of the collar. I like when things go all the way around.
It makes this basic, black tank really elegant. I LOVE this trim on it!

Here is a custom flower top I did for Alex. She chose this beautiful organic black cotton.

Here they are!! My beloved ruffle/twiggy dresses! I am SO happy with the way these came out! They are my favorite thing that I’ve done so far. I love the colors and how the girls are coordinating. They loved them, too! I ended up adding white bias tape to the collars and arms and then added a thick, white border at the bottom hem. I LOVE these dresses!

I really wanted to post a simple tutorial and it doesn’t get much simpler than this! I made these pink ruffle skirts for the girls and they are such a hit! I bought this fabric from our local fabric store, Harts Fabric. The link takes you right to the page where they sell the ruffle fabric. They have all different colors. The fabric isn’t the easiest to sew with, but if you’re a new sewer it’s so ruffly that it’s fairly forgiving.
Here’s what you do:
1. Measure the child’s waist and buy that measurement PLUS an additional half of what their waist measurement is. (If your child is is 20 inches, buy 30.) It’s so ruffly that you don’t want TOO much gathering at the waist or it looks funny.
2. Cut the fabric the desired length. You don’t even need to hem this fabric if you don’t want to because the fabric won’t fray. But if you want to hem it or add biased tape, do that at this point.
3. Fold the fabric over at the top to the desired width of your elastic. Sew your waistband seam.
4. Pull the elastic through the the waistband.
5. Serge or sew the skirt together.
Now you have a ruffle skirt!! Next time, I’ll do pictures. But it’s my first tutorial, so I have to ease into it If you have any questions, let me know or if you make it I’d love to see pictures!
