Step 6

Unfold the fabric to expose the scalloped edge. Starting from the right side, create a small fold. Add a small dot of hot glue in between the folds to keep everything in place.

Warning

  • Chiffon is quite thin. For best results, use a very small amount of glue. As always, a little goes a long way.

Step 7

Continue folding and gluing until you reach the center of the fabric.

Tip

  • Tight folds will form fuller ruffles, while wider folds will create a more loose shape. Feel free to experiment with scrap fabric to determine a look and style that fits your taste.

Step 8

Repeat Steps 6 and 7 from the left side. The last fold will meet the right side's folds in the center.

Lightweight fabrics work best for this project. If you want to use something other than chiffon, consider silk or metallic spandex. Both options are perfect for adding a luxurious touch to your heels.
