 Ruching is a French word that means "To Pleat". It is commonly used in bodices to create the scrunched part in the front, as well as in skirts. (Plus, in curtains. But that's a whole other shebang). Anways, I think photobucket will resize all the images, so the links are underneath them.

-Your fabric for ruching
-1 or two lengths or ribbon the length of your fabric or the area you are ruching
-Thread to sew the ribbon on
-Thread to actually ruch- I use embroidery floss, I like it better and it's stronger.
-Scissors, clean well lit area etc. etc.

Observe the totally rocking ms paint tutorial.

I'm showing this off as a bodice, but... it's the same principal everywhere (almost!)






(the gathers on the bodice)


this, the lovely dress handsewn by writeforme.

PS- I'm not stealing anyone's bandwith! It's mine! (or photobuckets  Grin)
If you have any questions, please! Ask me! I love to get pms!

That actually really makes sense ^^ you're welcome to use my photo, of course, but the ruching there is so much uglier than on the prettiful blue dress you posted.

Anyway, thanks for making this!
