Red Ruffle Shirt, Part 2 of 2
September 22, 2011 by Allie
This is Part 2 of 2 for sewing a red ruffle shirt. Click here for the instructions (Tea Rose Home).
So far, we’ve sewn the ruffles on to the shirt. Now, it’s time to make the fabric roses.
Cut strips of fabric according to the instructions.
To make the string, just pull the t-shirt (jersey) fabric. It stays shaped like a snake!
Sew the rose strips down the middle with a gathering stitch (long stitch).
Make your ruffles.
Fold the ruffles in half lengthwise and sew them round and round into a rose.
Add the roses and the string to the collar. I ended up trimming the length of the string.
I wanted to tack the ruffles in place, so I pinned them down.
I used my machine to tack the ruffles in place.
I ended up only tacking them in place at the ends of each ruffle. Voila! The completed ruffle shirt!
