Mishlei (Proverbs) 31:22,24

כב מַרְבַדִּים עָשְׂתָה-לָּהּ שֵׁשׁ וְאַרְגָּמָן לְבוּשָׁהּ
כד סָדִין עָשְׂתָה וַתִּמְכֹּר
She made for herself pleasant-looking bed covers; she also made herself white (linen) and purple garments to wear
She manufactured robes and sold them

Homemade Ruffles

One of the nicest things about having a sewing machine or a serger (or both), is the ability to make your own ruffles which you can then add to your garment, pillows, curtains, furniture covers, etc.  After having used a serger, I would prefer the ease of making ruffles using a serger over a sewing machine.

Here are some pictures that show what you can do with your machine to make ruffles.  Enjoy!

Create ruffled effect with a serger or sewing machine

Tons and tons of ruffles, save you money from buying at the store

Roll up your precious commodity around a cardboard; this one I recycle from purchased fabric

Attach ruffle to garment

Ruffle attached to garment, voila!

Thank you for watching. It might be worth an investment to you to own a serger.

Training Girls in Dressmaking

In our times, it is highly commendable to train girls in the art of dressmaking and general sewing. Lessons should be given on this subject in schools, and if necessary, also in seminaries.

If the girl becomes really expert, she will even be able to make garments for herself, and later on, when married also for her daughters. Also, she could take up dressmaking as a profession.
