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.


I did get the Dorothea Maria gown finished but I haven't taken photos yet which is one of the reason's why I haven't provided an update.

Other things that have been happening include; making up patterns for Svante and Nils Sture Doublets from Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion with varying success, changing over to a new computer and sorting out all my data, job hunting, planting out our new nature strip courtesy of our local council, replacing the kitchen splash-back, sorting my wardrobe to figure out what still fits and watching 'Deadwood' and being inspired to get started on Victorian garments (but that job might have to come first so I can buy lots of fabric).
