158. To Make a Ruffle Easily

To make a ruffle easily, just above depth
of the ruffle make a quarter inch tuck. Insert edge of ruffle under tuck,

flatten down tuck over the ruffle edge and stitch on edge of tuck. If the

ruffle is desired on very bottom of garment, make a quarter of an inch of

tuck, leaving about half of an inch of goods underneath. Baste and stitch

wrong side of ruffle to wrong side of half-inch piece, about quarter of an

inch from edge. Turn back, making edge come under tuck. Flatten tuck and

stitch on the edge. This will save all the trouble of bias bands, so

dreaded by the dress-maker.
