Shauna from Shwin & Shwin continues her Sewing 101 series with a tutorial all about making cascading ruffles or flounces. These differ from a typical gathered ruffle in that they’re cut in a circle, giving more fabric at the bottom of the ruffle than at the top. That extra fabric is what creates the flounce effect. When sewn in a vertical line, it creates a cascade of ruffles. Find out how to make them at Shwin & Shwin.
