How do you sew a ruffle by hand?

How much fabric do you need for a ruffle?

You’ll need to make a ruffle that’s two to three times the length than the area to which you’re attaching it. Allowing 2.5 times will usually give you a desirable ruffle, but three times is a best practice just to be sure. A very heavy fabric may require less length. A very thin fabric may require more length.
