Use sharp scissors.

It is important to keep scissors sharp and use the size of the scissors as per the type of fabric you are cutting. Never use a fabric scissor to cut other items like plastic or ropes or else it will get dull. Thus, try to take maximum care of the scissor and make sure to avoid using dull scissors.

Press buttons.

Gathering of fabrics.

Many people get worried about how to gather fabrics. We have an amazing trick to help you at this step. Try to use yarn or a thick thread to gather the fabric.

Use painter’s tape.

Painter’s tape is one of the best handy tools that you can use for a stitching project. Hold the pleats and ruffle together by using a painter’s tape. This way, it won’t hurt the fabric, and you will get a perfectly pleated outfit without spending any extra amount.

Dental floss.
