Default Re: Question about ruffle jeans..HELP!

I cut my fabric for my ruffle so it is twice as long. However long you make your ruffle, double that. Then when I attach it, I fold that piece in half and gather them together. That way your hem does not show on your ruffle. So if your ruffle is 4 inches deep I cut mine 8 inches, fold in half to get your 4 inches and then sew it on the pants or shorts, whatever you are making.

You know I thought of that but did not see anyone doing that....it's such a wonerful idea! No hemming...just maybe a zig zag or hem when you put it on to prevent the fraying. Mine are fraying terribly!! On this particular pair I need to cover up the top to stop the fraying...I think in the future I like the zig zag on top and bottom of the ruffle or the fold over idea.

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

I used to fold my ruffle in half to avoid hemming but to save fabric I bought a narrow hem foot (it was only $12 dollars)....since I don't have a serger It is the closest thing I can get to a rolled hem lol. When you are putting your ruffle onto the jeans you want to put it on upside down so the bottom of the ruffle is facing the top of the pants. Straight stitch it in place, then trim the ruffle to remove some of the fray and zig zag stitch you can also zig zag over it twice. Then flip it back down, press the seam upward then top stitch. That's about the best you can do without a serger.

I do double ruffles too (folded ruffle with no hemming) and finish ALL seams with a zig zag stitch. Press the seam up and topstitch - I usually use a decorative stitch, but a straight stitch works too.
