I am trying to create a ruffle similar to the one on this blouse: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3083627?Category=&Search=True&SearchType=keywordsearch&keyword=ruffle&origin=searchresults

Does anyone know which shape I should cut out..and how to apply it?

- Overlock the bottom edge.
- Make the bottom edge wider than the top.
- Shaped sort of like a trapezium.
- The longer you make the bottom edge, the more "ruffley" it will look at the bottom.
- And it looks like two layers, so you'd need four pieces shaped like the "trapezium". The pieces that go on the wearer's right side of the top should be mirrored, depending on what type of fabric you use.

yes! good advice, GRABthatUKE.
However, notice that the ruffles do not end in the center front, they continue to the bottom layer.
Here are some poorly drawn pictures that may help (not to scale):
This is what each of the two pieces attached to the front should look like.

The red line is the approximate attachment line for each of the front pieces. You should pin it and try it on before sewing to the shirt so you can easily make adjustments.

I hope this helps. Happy Crafting!
