So my three favorite things right now are ruffles, chipotle and avocados. We are eating an avocado a day and ruffles are showing up on just about everything I'm making these days. I've been slacking on my posts but I have a ton of stuff to show you so I'm going to post a "ruffle-ing my stuff" post every day this week. I'll even throw in some recipes here and there of my favorite ways to eat avocados and chipotle! Aren't you so excited! ;)
I updated this white cardigan with some ruffles probably 3 weeks ago. I'm trying to be a little bit fancier with my clothes ( I guess that is what happens when you are 30!) and with ruffles being all the rage and SO easy to embellish with its perfect!
I took a strip of fabric that was 4 inches wide by 22 inches long. Folded it in half rights sides together and sewed. Turn it right side out and press with the seam to the back.
Then I ruffled it up to the length I wanted.
On the side with the buttons I pinned the ruffle right next to the buttons.
On the side with the button holes I pinned it to the very edge and sewed very close to the edge being careful not to sew over the button holes.
And there you go a fancy new sweater in no time and no money later!
