I came across these pictures, and I’m in love with these chair drapes. The problem is I’m not very crafty and have no idea how to pull off something like this. Is anyone crafty enough to give me some ideas on how to do this and what material this is? I love the soft curl of the fabric. These pictures make me swoon.

Cascading ruffles like that are made by cutting ring or donut shapes out of fabric. The inner edge is the length of the ruffle, and the other edge makes the curl you like so much.
Here’s a couple links that may help, and explain it better than I can:
The fabric in those pictures is some form of organza, I’m guessing a fairly cheap sort. I wouldn’t go for tulle (despite it being cheaper) since it won’t create the same drape. If you use fray-stop, no need to hem the edges! Try a couple different sized circles to get the degree of curl that you want, and sew a couple together if you need more length.
A project like that isn’t too hard, just time-intensive. If it’s too daunting, what about just creating two for your and your FI’s chairs?

Would it be awful to do this only for the head table? Then I could have that amazing pic without the expense.
