This sweater was sitting in my closet lonely and bored. I thought I should lift its spirits with a crepe-ruffle edge to give it new life & ready for Spring. It was surprisingly quick to do and easier than I expected.
1 Choose a fabric that has some texture and is pretty thin
2 Cut two strips of fabric at 4″x 40″ or longer depending on length of sweater
3 Iron fabric strips in half so it is about 2″ wide
4 Run a wide-stitch… on my machine the stitch was set to 4 and then tension 4
5 Hold the top thread while gathering the fabric so it is evenly ruffled
6 Pin the ruffled fabric to the sweater so that there’s 1/4″ of the fabric layering overlapping a seam to the left of the buttons on your sweater. That seam is where you will sew so you’re stitching isn’t seen.
Repeat for the other side of the sweater.
