Gathering fabric is always such a pain, but we hope to show you some different ways to gather!
There is, of course the traditional way - 2 or 3 rows of basting stitches on your sewing machine, ideally, one above the seam allowances and one below to ensure the most even gathers. Then pulling the threads to gather them to your desired width. But here are 2 video's showing you how to gather using your serger and using elastic!
