Ruffle Top

Ruffle tops have always fascinated me; but i was kind of scared by its avant-garde  look and stayed away from it.

My sister gave me Art of Manipulating fabric book and that book was an eyeopener. I would recommend every sewing enthusiast to have one. It had a chapter on Ruffles and Flounces. I tried the vertical flounce in this ruffle top. Though it is not upto 100%. I am glad with the output. Will dare to try more variations now.

The fabric was poor quality satin didn't help the cause either. Had a tough time sewing it together. The Ruffle finish always plays a part in the hang, i had to use rolled hem as it don't have serger and the edges became kind o stiff, when compared to unfinished edge. Wish i had a serger.... anyway  will try out other edge finishes and see what suits this style the best.

Hope my SIL likes it as this one is for her.
