Volare Sweater how to add a Ruffle

Arina is here again to share a great modification with us. Adding a ruffle to the V-shape of the Volare Sweater is right on trend. This style is something I see a lot in the store. Now you can make your own. Follow the directions below, and do not forget to show us your result in our Facebook group or tag us on IG (@Sofilantjes_anne).

Say hi to Arina on IG and thank her by following her account.

Take the pattern pieces for a 2 piece front piece and take pattern piece 2 for the ruffle.

Draw lines of 2 cm on your pattern piece, to about 5 cm above the point and cut these lines to the seam value.

Fold the seam value inward and tape your pattern piece to a new piece of pattern paper. Then you are going to place the cut-in pieces 4 mm apart and glue them in place.

Fold back the seam value, cut in a few times if necessary and also glue in place.

Draw seam value on the side where normally the fabric fold is. You can’t cut your pattern at the fabric fold anymore because of the curve you have in your pattern now.

Place your pattern piece on double fabric, cut out and sew together. Trim the corners.

Temporarily attach the ruffle to the lower part of your front.

From now on, sew the pattern as in the instructions

♡ Arina
