Gathering is one of those sewing techniques that can be done in multiple ways and every sewist has their favorite. Today I’m going to show you the most traditional way of gathering, which also happens to be the technique I use most frequently (I’m a traditionalist I guess!)
The video below is going to show you how to gather your skirt pieces to fit the waistband of the Chelsea Party Dress. After that, I will go onto connecting the waistband to the gathered skirt.
If you happened upon this post but aren’t following the Chelsea Party Dress sewalong, you will still find the video helpful in explaining traditional gathering techniques.
And stay tuned for tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some fun styling tips!
