I know how to make a piece of fabric ruffle.  However, when I want to add ruffles to a tank or a t-shirt, I'm not sure if I should be starting with a crescent moon shape to ruffle, a rectangle or something else to get it to sit right so the actual edges poking out of the sleeves or tank straps is ruffly.  Any advice?

Pretty please!!!!

That depends on whether you want it to gather at the seam (where the two pieces of fabric meet) or not.

A circular cut ruffle will have a smooth join at the seam and will ruffle at the free end.

A rectangular cut ruffle with gather at seam where they join and also of course on the free side.
