Ruffly Romper and How To Make Ruffles...

I found this cute little romper at Wal-Mart.  I love these little packages of lace from JoAnns that you get by all the thread.  They have so many different colors, ranging from orange to purple.

So I cut them into three strips and angled the ends, and each one was a little bigger than the next.

Next, starting at the edge of the lace, backstitch, and then change your tension knob to about a 5-7, and your stitch length to as big as it can go.  If you can't figure this out go HERE for gathering the old fashioned way :).

It should look like this and leave some length of thread so you can tie then ends in a knot.

Tie in a knot and trim edges.
Next starting from the smallest piece on top, pin it to your desired clothing.
And finish all three strips.
Then make sure before you sew it on that you change your tension knob back to a 2 and a 1/2.  That's what I normally sew with.  And change your stitch length back to normal.
Then proceed to attach your lace to the clothing, backstitching both ends.
So flippin cute, right?  But wait...

I added some silk flower pins and I'm in love.  Is that weird to be in love with a romper?

Here is some more tanks I made with the ruffles.  I liked them so much I made myself some tanks with ruffles.
And I really loved the mustard yellow on the hot pink so much I made myself one with a matching skirt.
Please give it a try it's super easy!  To see new posts of mine click HERE.
