This Autumn will be synonymous with ruffles and pleats! You’ll find a plethora of pants, shirts, skirts and blouses all adorned with the likes. If your not a “frilly” person, to say the least, you can still pull off this trend; accessorize with…..
Things you will need:
- 3 in. wide fabric, length depends on preference (more length more ruffles)
- 20 gauge wire
- Jump rings and clasp
- Buttons, ribbon or brooches to decorate from Goodwill
- Needle and thread
Step one: First you need to cut a strip of fabric approx. 3″ wide, the length will vary depending on the weight and how “full” you want your ruffle to be.
Step two. Iron your strip in half with the right side facing out.
Step three. sew a 1/4″ straight stitch along the folded end of your fabric.
Step four. Make sure you sew along the folded side, you are creating a sleeve for the wire.
Step five. Cut a piece of wire approx. 12″ in length. Make a wire wrapped loop with one end of the wire.
Step six. after you have wire wrapped one end of your wire, begin feeding the other end into the sleeve of the strip of fabric you have created.
Step seven. continue until you have reached amount of ruffles you want.
Step eight. wire wrap the second end of the wire.
Step nine: add any chain, beads or ribbon that you want for the closure
Step ten: adorn your ruffle necklace with buttons, ribbon or brooches!
Spice it up: Use tulle for instant elegance!
- If you want your ruffle necklace full like in the picture do multiple layers of ruffles with a width of about 5 inches and layering is key!
