ruffle tunic


Don't you love learning something new?  Last week I learned how to ruffle fabric using my Brother serger, and it sure beats pulling threads (thanks, Pinterest!).   Check out the tutorial at {lbg studio} if you want to learn, too.

I made this little top for one of my favorite baby friends using the Sweet Little Dress pattern by Leila & Ben.  I shortened the dress to a tunic, lengthened the sleeves to about 3/4 length, and added lots of playful ruffles.  It felt really good to pull the serger out again - I even changed the thread!

Hope you had a great weekend.  :)

Super cute. I need the pattern, and my new serger has been in its box for over a year! Wish I could come over so you could TEACH me :)

As soon as this popped up on the screen, my daughter said from across the room that she needs me to make her one just like it. We both think its super cute!

Love this! I have the same serger and haven't tried the ruffle foot yet. This looks like the perfect project to try it on, thanks for the link to the tutorial. Did you make this top with a knit material?

Your Brother serger has been at the top of my wish list for ages, but this year it got pushed out by a new camera lens... maybe next Christmas! I'm always amazed at your quality of sewing Jill! You put so much love in to your things! :)

I finally have stopped to comment :-) I love that you mention changing the thread! It always seems like such a big job, why not put up with the white already in it :-) Must get over myself and change the thread!! Thanks for sharing!

I need to learn how to ruffle fabric with a serger, but you did inspire me to make a dress for my four year old very similar to this. Light blue linen instead of coral, but she wore it to church today and I love it! Thanks for sharing!
