But then I'm like 'Ohhhh.' when you got it to this part. THat helped a whole ton! DOnt be so nervous 'cause you're really good at sewing and this is a brilliant idea.

@12:07I once gathered an entire petticoat by hand. The bottom tier--it was 3 tiers total--was at about 24 feet long. It was a very lightweight muslin, but none the less, the basting didn't work so well for me so by the end of it I just sat there and did it by hand. Over. And over. And over. Until I thought it looked even enough and sewed it down.

If only I had this then.

@09:19I hate when I start to loose my glasses when I'm sewing.
My glasses have a habit of falling off my face making me crawl around blindly for them.

This video is so helpful! Thank you so much for all of your tutorials!

Aww! I hope you can get yours fixed soon :hug: I know how bad it is to be without a machine that can do those things - my regular home machine is in the shop, and I have no idea when I'm going to get it back, which leaves me with my industrial (which thankfully does go backwards...) but no zig-zag :hug:

I just hope that, once your machine is back, you get to try it out! :glomp:

@09:05Funny you should comment... I just used your technique on a skirt I stitched up today ^^. I still have a problem distributing the gathers, but it was SO MUCH EASIER to do. My fingers weren't red and sore afterwards. Thank you so much for posting this little trick!

I'll be abusing this technique in the very near future... oh boy oh boy =D

@02:17Hrm... I think it might be - my friend has a machine like that that she sews on, and was able to do this, but I'm not positive. I don't know what it is, but every time I try to do ruffles like that, I wind up snapping the threads, but it might be that I'm just too impatient to do it well ;P

:highfive: I'm glad I'm not the only one - in school, I got all the projects with huge amounts of ruffles (or, later on, trim :faint:) because I loved tacking it on things :D

Hehe, the ruffle foot is usually this crazy giant thing that clips onto the machine, but they really work well - if you have one, give it a shot! :glomp:

I have film privileges!! :mwahaha:

Okay, now that that is out of my system, here is a tutorial I did a few days ago, after reading a news article about the new film categories. I'm still working on my wedding stuff, and thought, "hey, there won't be another time I'm for sure working on a ruffle, so I should try to film what to do and make a tutorial."

And I did.

Please forgive a few things:

:pointr: 1. My voice. I hate how it sounds.

:pointr: 2. My nervous twitches in the second half. I know, I have a lot of them - if you know me, be amazed that I even had the guts to film this, because I hate being in front of people. If you've seen my panels at conventions, you'll notice that I'm like this all the time.

:pointr: 3. That it's so long. I don't know how to cut the size down, or cut out stuff. I just set up the camera (took a good 10 minutes to get the tripod set up right each time), and hit the button, and started talking. If you're really annoyed at the time, the first part is what you'll really need to know, the rest (last 10 minutes or so) is just stuff you can figure out yourself.

:pointr: 4. That I ramble. A lot. I didn't have a script - hell, I didn't have an idea of what I was going to do until just a minute or three before I actually hit the record button.

:pointr: 5. If something goes out of sync - I was looking at the preview thing in iMovie, and when in fullscreen mode, the second half is off of sync or something, but when I moved it back down to a smaller version, it was fine... I don't get it, and I'm so sorry if it looks like poo... I have never, ever done anything with film before, so I'm a total n00b!

Random note:
I'm not going to walk you through everything step by step - this should be enough information to get you to make a ruffle for anything you might need; please don't ask to film how to make the fabric piece (it's a god-awful long rectangle, with finished edges) or the petticoat it's on - some day, I might, but right now, no time for that, I'm sorry.

My goal : to give you the techniques to do what you want to do, not hold your hand through it all :D

Anywho, I'm sorry again about my voice, editing, and whatnot. But, I hope you learn something from this, and if you use the tutorial, please let me know! I appreciate it every time someone shows me a piece one of my tutorials helped out with, I really, really do!

This is SO HELPFUL! I saw a bunch of videos and post about HOW to make a petticoat but something still wasn't totally right. I finally found your tutorials and now I think I'm ready enough to do this :D Thank you ^^

THANK YOU! I already have made tons of ruffle using the parallel threads way, but like you said, one always breaks or something! It's such a nightmare! This method seems so much more reliable since the heavier cotton gets the stress of pulling, not the tiny threads.

I'm about to make a really short petticoat/ruffly skirt using your tutorial, so I'm glad I could find this video. Thank you for posting so many wonderful things! :meow:
