Tucks like this have been very popular with sewists almost since sewing began. Even with hand stitching, this is a relatively easy way to add interest and texture to a garment. Although the idea has been around for a long time, I am seeing it pop up again in RTW (ready-to-wear) in a myriad of ways, many of which have inspired me like never before. But first, let’s get to how this is done. (Lesson developed by Heather Claus.)
