Tulle, you are the queen of ruffles

The final way that tulle excells is by making the most amazing ruffles. No need to hem the edge leaves them light and frothy.

Cute ruffles below and also a lovely sleeve.

A wonderful technique using the ruffles vertically, narrower at the top edge and fuller at the hem.

Tulle wont hold a permanent pleat like some synthetic fabrics will but they can be put through the machine and will pleat beautifully if you only want to wear them once

I don’t love the below dress but I do quite like the idea. Ruffles of tulle used between placed lace to give softness and texture. The ruffles on the dress below I think are a little too long but it is still very inspiring.1654bf433d17457883ad4e54a7b93913

This dress is not made of tulle but a skirt of cascading ruffles like this could be made easily. This skirt is so effective because the lines of the ruffles don’t follow the usual direction around the skirt.

Simple but effective rows of tulle ruffles on a separate skirt.
