Default Re: Question about ruffle jeans..HELP!

I learned this way from an old ebay boutique group that was pretty active about 8 years ago. It looks professional and you can see the wrong side of your fabric by doing it this way. You can even cover up your raw edges on the inside with a solid grosgrain ribbon, bias tape, or on the top of the jeans where your stitching is, you can also add a contrast ribbon to your fabric. I used to have a lot of pictures of my work on here but had to delete them cuz I was running out of space. This was before photobucket.
When you see sellers selling skirts, pants, shorts, etc for hundreds of dollars, you start to pay attention with big dreams LOL There was a seller named Sraan who lived in Orange County who made some delish outfits and made a pretty penny too. Of course, she would share just enough but not all of it
