My number one critic pointed out to me that they are not in fact pin tucks, more likely spaced tucks!
So, out came my manipulated fabric bible…
There are seven basic types of standard tucks:
Double Centred Tucks
and Tapered Tucks. Just for the record the others are:
Designer, Cross, Random, Mock Pin, Curved, Shell, Contoured, Keyhole, Satin-stitched Contoured, Slashed, Sharks Teeth, Snip-fringed, Ravelled-fringe, Undulating, Bow-tied, Cross stitched, Patterned, Cross tacked, Bubble, Cabled, Partially seamed, Released, Interrupted, Seamless, Cluster and Tied.
Below is a sample of undulating tuck.
Thank you anyway Ms Ann Onimus – if I knew who you were I would thank you personally – by inadvertently persuading me to make these few samples you have given me some interesting ideas for future use!
