you could try having a seamstress add a little bunch of stiff tulle under each ruffle that you want to "pop", way up at the seam, just so the ruffle is laying on something stiff so they can't lay flat against each other (I'm thinking like a strip of stiff tulle bunched together to form like a thin piece, like a pencil sort of I guess right up at the seam if that makes sense)
