Welcome To Thread It Thursday!!!
Today I just wanted to share the sewing technique I used to make this skirt I recently made for my mother.
I find that this technique is much easier than using a basting stitch. There is no need to worry or deal with threads breaking as you gather…..especial if you’re using a fabric heavier in weight.
You can check out a previous post called the Designer Look For Less, where I used the same technique here.
My goal with this post is to share a tidbit that I have found useful and makes sewing a bit easier!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.
Happy Sewing & Until Next Time,

The floral print on the fabric is delightful, I’m sure your mother loved it.
I’ve always used 2 basting stitches and then I hold my breath and say a silent prayer when I pull the threads to gather the fabric. It’s frustrating if the thread breaks 😀
Thank you for sharing this tip, easier, tried and tested techniques add more fun to sewing.
Have a lovely day.
