How do you sew frills?

Which fabric is best for ruffles?

Ruffles were used on light and airy silk fabrics with prints and stripes at Chanel and on nude and neutral colored transparent and sheer fabrics at McQueen. Roberto Cavalli took ruffles to a casual dimension with dye-printed taffeta for super-dramatic mini-skirts and pretty blouses paired with denim and leather.

How do you gather stretchy fabric?

Another quick way to gather fabric is to use elastic thread or thin elastic cording. Simply hold the elastic within the seam allowance of your fabric and zigzag over the elastic. After that, pull on the elastic ends to gather the fabric. Because the elastic is flexible, it’s easy to adjust the gathers.

What is the difference between ruffles and frills?

There is – since you ask – a difference between a frill and a ruffle: a frill is a strip of pleated material used as a decoration or trim, while a ruffle is a gathered strip of fabric used in the same way.
