Easy Fabric Gathers With the Zig Zag Method

“The standard sewing technique for gathering fabric while sewing is to sew two lines of basting stitches and then gently pull the fabric to gather along the stitch line.  This method is tedious risks breaking the basting stitches.  Instead of gathering using basting stitches, today I am going to show you a simpler method of gathering using a zigzag stitch over thread.”   – Needlepointers
