Lots of decorators make ruffles like this. Hope this helps.

I cut long strips and start from the bottom and kind of gather the fondant a bit as I put it on , I keep a damp chux , to lay the strip on before I start to gather them and I find this sticks them on fine. I just keep going until I get to the top , you just hide the joins as a gather. A more modern twist on the traditional Dolly Varden cake that I remember as a little girl. White chocolate and rose mudcake with vanilla bean buttercream, Fondant frills and bodice.
