Ruffler Foot Made Sew Easy It's Hands Free!

If you've ever used a ruffler foot you will know you need to guide your fabric carefully.

I've been making a Victorian Gown. That means lots of ruffley goodness. I have about 150 meters of ribbon I'm using on this project most of which I've been pleating using my sewing machines ruffler foot. 
Carefully guiding that much yardage through would drive me insane!

I needed a way to make it easy and fast without needing a lot of concentration.

I needed to automate guiding that ribbon through.

It's so easy and simple and effective I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier.

Welcome to my blog

I guess this is the part where I welcome you to my blog and tell you how exciting and awesome I hope it will be or something like that. And really, you ARE very welcome here!



However I'm not going to make any promises as to awesomeness or excitement, nor will I promise regular posts, good photo's, helpful tutorials & tips or even that my ramblings will make sense. I'm going to give it a go of course (or you wouldn't be reading this). I'm really new to this whole blogging thing and have a lot to learn so I'll hope you'll forgive any bad lay out, blogging faux pars, put-you-to-sleep ramblings and anything else I'm likely to stuff up along the way. Feel free to let me know if you think I could improve something.

By the way, I know I will provide a confusing mix of imperial and metric measurements, I use both and often I'll use them in the same project - sorry about that.

Oh, I nearly forgot, it's all about costuming, mostly historical stuff...enjoy!

  1. I just love your photo of the Duchesse Consort of Florence but am eternally pleased I don't have to wear clothes like her! Fine for an hour or so maybe though! Thank you so much for joining in with #MyFirstBlogPost :)

  2. I don't know, I think she was one of the luckier ones in history, where clothing was padded and corsets and crinolines were rare. Generally quite comfortable, I would love to have her wardrobe.
