    Gathers

    Gathering is a sewing technique that is used to shorten a strip of fabric either for volume or to attach it to a shorter piece of fabric. To create gathers threads are sewn though the edges of a strip of fabric and are then “drawn up” creating folds in the strip of fabric and thereby shortening it. Gathers are typically used to create fullness on the sleeve, leg or bodice.
