I have been making ruffles. By the way, I hate making ruffles, but sometimes they are necessary and at least I have a way to make them that is fail proof. I set my zig-zag stitch at the widest setting and sew over crochet thread. When I am done I pull the crochet thread to make the ruffles. This works particularly well with heavy decor fabrics.
Voila! ruffles made.
You can see below how the crochet thread method works.
I found this gorgeous brocade fabric at an online remnant store. I thought is would be right for the daybed pillows in the guest bedroom. I bought it without sending for a sample and held my breath when it came and I opened it. Perfect!
When I get these pillows finished this room will finally be done it seems to have taken me forever, rooms including lots of fabric seem to require the most time to pull together and with this room it was the drapes plus the bedding for the daybed.
I did manage to squeeze in a little sewing time to make a new dress. This is for casual wear. I love this dress pattern. Made out of knit. It is so comfortable to wear in our hot summer weather, goes together like a breeze and is actually quite flattering.
Enough sewing for now, the weather has cooled down a bit and the garden is demanding attention.
Thank you for visiting I hope you have a great day!
