    I didn’t quite understand what this was at first (very new to sewing) but than I understood that it had to be little creases?? Or am I wrong? That you fold tiny tiny creases so it looks like this? Oh please say I’m right so I understand SOMETHING =) It looked very nice!!I’m gonna try!

    the gilded bee: It’s not a dumb question at all! I used 2 mm stitch for these pintucks, and they didn’t fall apart after cutting the fabric. Though, they did got loosen a bit at the ends, but the seam allowances were wide enough (1.5 cm) to prevent the pintucks from ripping away. No special treatment needed.

    (this feels like a dumb question) Will the pintucks come out if you cut into them with your pattern? How can I make sure they stay secure?

    krunamagiar: I suppose that you could sew the pintucks on bias, but you should secure the fabric from stretching (as you know, the fabric becomes a bit stretchy when folded on bias). This how-to refers to this shirt I made, and I used thin cotton for it. So, the fabric would stretch while sewing the pintucks and that would give it wavy look I wanted to omit. Now, I have sewn the pintucks on bias on really stiff and non-stretchy fabric, you can see it here. The fabric was firm enough so that even when folded on bias it didn’t stretch.

    Does it mean the pintucks need to be paralell with the grain line? How would it be if you make pintucks on bias grain?
