100+ Free Ruffles Sewing Patterns

ruffles sewing patternsDo You Love Ruffles Sewing Patterns As Much As I Do?

I love not only the look of ruffles (in the right place, of course) but I love sewing ruffles too.  I think ruffles can make an elegant look when used a certain way but also a relaxed casual look when used another.  This makes them very useful in sewing as you can imagine.

Ruffles have been used in sewing and garment making for a long time.  According to my research, they first appeared back in the 15th century and were used as part of a drawstring neckline.  By the 16th century, ruffles had a life of their own and were used independently necklines as a separate embellishment.  Ruffles and flounces have been used widely in sewing and fashion ever since.

I did a tutorial a while back on how to gather fabric and add ruffles properly.  If you like ruffles sewing patterns too, you may want to review this tutorial before undertaking any of these wonderful ruffles projects.
