I’ve been in love with this bathing suit for some time, and after having kids, something like this would be great for my not-so-great anymore stomach, and not to mention that the top part of it is fantastic. http://www.victoriassecret.com/ss/Satellite?ProductID=1265700224915&c=Page&cid=1324474291540&pagename=vsdWrapper
The gathering on it looks really fine. It’s not chunky or anything. I know when you typically gather fabric, you use your longest stitch to baste & then pull them. So, how would I obtain something that is tighter, like that suit? I did see this pattern on here, but it has a gather through the center, and I don’t really want to attact attention to my middle. She achieved how tight I want the gathering to be. http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/cindy-top
So, I guess what I’m asking is how to get gathering to be that close together, and does anyone have any tips on the top? Would the gathering have to do with the type of fabric maybe?

Wash in hot water and hang up, perhaps use a garment steamer to take out wrinkles.
