Pin tucks are an easy detail to add to your dresses, skirts, blouses, pants,. . . anything! They are tiny folds that are sewn down, usually in groups of three or more in tops and dresses, or just one in pants and trousers. It can seem intricate, but its quite simple. And if you pleat your fabric before cutting out the pattern piece, you can save yourself a lot of pattern work.
