LOVELY RUFFLES

Oh ruffles you are so pretty and you make me smile, so its lucky that im seeing lots of them in the spring summer 08 collections and mostly recently from St martins graduate Christopher Kane. Kanes s/s 08 consisted of de-constructed denium, oversize sequins and RUFFLES lots of ruffles.. and it just so happened that today at my college we were taught how to create these fabric shapes.



How to create a ruffle: cut a circle of fabric with a smaller circle in the middle then cut through to the inner circle. Then all you do is hold it up so the length of fabric drapes and there you have it!
Below i have shown a couple of things you could do with your ruffle but the possibilites are endless.. as a sticky up collar, the edge of a dress, cuff of a sleeve...
