Tutorial: How to add a ruffle to your Gemma

Jessica Pieneman made a tutorial for you. She added a ruffle to the Gemma bodysuit sleeve. This tutorial will also work on the Gemma top. Let’s show you how.

Don’t forget to visit her Social Media to thank her.

When cutting out the pattern pieces, include two straight strips for the ruffles.

To do this, measure the length of the top of your sleeve and multiply it by 1.5x (or more if you want more effect). I used a height of 4″- 10 cm to leave a ruffle of 1.5″- 4 cm.

Fold the strips lengthwise with wrong sides together, and gather those strips so that you end up exactly with your sleeve.

Now place the strips between the sleeve pieces and sleeve openings right sides together and sew in place.

The ruffle is now in between.

When sewing the side seams, place the ends of the ruffle neatly in between and sew together.

Finish the sleeves and sew the leg band as described in the instructions. And ready is your Gemma Romper with ruffle!

Enjoy your make!
