Decorative ruching on light weight knits
Does anyone have a good (easy) method for ruching a light weight knit fabric? Threads had a one-page how-to on piping seams with decorative fleece, which inspired me to use long crosswise pieces of fabric for decorative trim. But, my problem is that the knit I want to use in a decorative fashion won’t curl up enough to be used as piping. So, my next idea is ruching.
This is for a color blocked pullover with remants from three different light weight knits. The collar is a wide funnel neck that I had to piece out of two of the fabrics. I want to use the third fabric as decorative trim when I hem the funnel neck.
Anyone out there with ideas? Or should I just go to my sewing room and play?
