Flavors to Follow: Ruffles

You know what I am loving these days??  Ruffles!   They just add a visually interesting and girly texture to just about anything… clothes, decorating, notebooks, accessories, etc.  Ruffles can make things go from blah to tadaa!!  To be honest though, I haven’t sewn my own ruffle yet but after looking at all the pictures below, I must try it out REAL SOON!  Here are some beautiful ruffle inspirations I’ve found lately…

    “Are you crazily obsessed about ruffles like I am??” –> YESSSS!

    Ciao Sandy! Ruffles are indeed fabulous and a must-have in my spring-summer wardrobe! I’ve been thinking to do my own too! A scrap of pretty fabric (sporty like plain grey jersey, romantic, japan-inspired, silk…) and a white t-shirt + sewing machine and voilΓ ! If I ever have time in this days, I’ll definitely try thanks to your inspiration.
    That wedding dress is simply superb, love the peculiar shade of pink (v. expensive tough…)
    Have a lovely weekend you too!
    Ciao!

    I used to not be a fan of ruffles…I always thought they might be too cutesy…but it’s funny how tastes can change. I love them now – especially when they’re done in a cool, modern way like the wedding dress…how stunning is that?? and i love the curtains and the other dress (and I could go on and on now πŸ™‚

    i am a huge fan of ruffles! Love this post. That first pillow is so pretty. I think I must make it mine! πŸ™‚

    Oh my gosh, I had never heard of ShopRuche before and now I’m drooling over everything in their shop!! It’s so adorable and so affordable. Have you ever ordered from there? I’m curious about the length of their dresses. They seem short but it’s hard to tell. And I wish that purse were in stock. I’m totally coveting it in marigold!

  8. April 30, 2010 / 10:42 am

    Oooh I adore ruffles! They’re amazing. Happy weekend lady!

    I do love ruffles!! That grey ruffle curtain is calling out to me, if I could figure out where to hang it I would snap it up asap! Or maybe I should just buy it and worry about where to put it later, lol.

    i am a sucker for ruffles! when i’m shopping, i can rarely resist items with ruffles and pintucks. (and pockets on a dress… it’s my weakness) i am in love with the ruffled window covering, btw. how sweet.

    When I worked at Anthropologie we made so many ruffles all of the time, it was so much fun! I sure love them in the pinstripes.

    i LOVE ruffles too!! especially that bag from ruche….i was soo sad to find out it’s sold out!

  20. April 30, 2010 / 7:51 pm

    Love ruffles! I even bought a ruffler foot for my machine, but it is a little intimidating. The lady at the shop showed me how to use it (again) and sent me home with a perfectly ruffled example, but I still haven’t tackled it. I have visions of all sorts of ruffles on my daughter’s outfits!

  21. April 30, 2010 / 8:07 pm

    I am a such a ruffle girl. They’re so girly and flirty. Nice choice of photos.

  22. April 30, 2010 / 10:36 pm

    All of these ruffles make me want to learn how to make them! They are so beautiful and feminine and I love them. β™₯

    I’ve only recently become a big fan of ruffles. But I’m having some issues with them now I have — I can’t get enough! Your post is like candy for a sugar high child. I love it and just want more!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  24. April 30, 2010 / 11:35 pm

    i’m not soooo excited about ruffles but you’ve posted some pretty great things in your mosaic. LOVE the curtains and the purse. they’re lovely.

  27. May 1, 2010 / 6:05 am

    i love all these ruffles! i have a ruffle shirt that i got a while ago from banana republic and my hubby calls it my “pirate shirt.” needless to say, he’s not a ruffle fan. he stifles my love for ruffles! ha ha! the purse reminds me of big buddha’s… they have a similar version that’s super cute and comes in a variety of colors!

  28. May 1, 2010 / 10:37 am

    i have been lusting after that ruche bag for a while now. it’s marvelous.

    enjoy your day πŸ™‚
