Learn How to Ruch a Simple Tee

My first pattern The Ruched-T  (now available in sizes XXS – 5X and paper or downloadable :))has been out a few months now and I have really enjoyed all the emails and facebook postings from everyone wearing their new tops 🙂   A few of you have asked how I do the ruching and I thought the best way to explain is to just show you.  So I have put together a short video and of course I had to show another awesome feature on the Brother Dreamweaver XE VM6200D, the multi function foot controller.  This special foot allows you to use your feet to backstitch,  cut the thread, put the needle down, etc. and then you can keep your hands on the fabrics while sewing!  Wait until you see this one!  Anyway, enjoy ruching your tee’s and keep sending me photo’s, I love it 🙂   xoxo Angela

Brother™ has provided me with the DreamWeaver XE, but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.

  1. It is truly that easy….and the tape you sent is perfect for this technique.
    I found some tape at my local fabric store in the home dec section.
    Lovely pattern and I get lots of compliments when I wear my tee’s.


  2. Angela, your timing could not have been more perfect! I sewed up the long sleeved Ruched – T with a tall collar with the twist last weekend but didn’t finish with the twill tape yet. Thank you for the video tips.

    The design is really fun. What is so great about it is that with the many options in choosing your design, the Ruched – T pattern can take you through all four seasons. I can’t wait to make another one!
