Hi Everyone! This week we'll take a closer look at creating and working with pintucks. Pintucks are tiny pleats folded and stitched down on the fabric. They can be used horizontally or vertically in a given design. Often times they are used in groupings of three, as shown in the Boomerit Falls Dress, Steam Bib Top, and Roebuck Bay Skirt designs. They are a great way to add visual interest without any additional cost or materials. I love techniques like this!
In the video posted below, I share with you a few examples and hands-on tutorials for creating pintucks. I've also included an example of what you would need to do to add them to an existing design. I hope this will encourage and inspire you to try something new!
