Then, I cut the ruffle fabric into strips. in graduated widths. I made the cut just to the right of the seams in the fabric.
Last, I sewed the narrowest ruffle strip on, following the edge of the cardigan, to finish off the edge. So, in this step, I was sewing through 4 layers: the cardigan, and all 3 ruffle strips.
My upcycled, improved, ruffled cardigan. Much better, don’t you think?
