How to gather fabric. I love the look but takes some time right. These are some super tips to make it easier. I tried the ruffler which to me would save a lot of time but cannot get it right on the setting. Second the floss which I never heard of but not crazy about the way it looks and my favorite to run a long stitch across the top but always only did once. Love the 2 stitches used it gives it a much prettier finish. Thank you for the wonderful tips and the very well done video. Which is your favorite way to gather?
