The childrens clothes and womens I see ruffles everywhere is great. I bought a ruffler foot. I love the peasant blouses and skirts that are in again. So much from the 50s and 60s are coming back. I like it.

I always loved ruffles but don't enjoy doing them. I really like the small ones that are on tops. Being thinking of doing some. I need to order a ruffler too.

Once you get the hang of the ruffler foot is is so easy. I did 12 ft of ribbon in seconds.

I am also a ruffle-free zone.

Have you tried the ruffler for pleats? Or gathering? Such a breeze!

I set the ruffler on the pleat setting as well as gathering and regular ruffle settings. I think it should pleat well. I hope to make mt grandaughter a genuine Scottish tartan skirt some day since it is her mama's heritage. Thses plaids can be up and above $50 per yard for clan colours , so if anyone knows of a fabric place for this I would love to know. Other than shipping from Scotland of course. I am not really a ruffle diva myself--too old but it looks cute on the grandkids. It could also be use when doing ruffled draperies.

I am not a huge fan of ruffles and very picky about outfits that have ruffles. I don't even like ruffles much on others.
So far, no ruffles in my closet and only a few patterns with ruffles that caught my eye.
