Gathering fabric is one of those techniques that seems complicated, but doesn't have to be. It's really just about scrunching one piece of fabric to fit a smaller piece, which adds a nice puff to the shape of your project. You’ve seen it a bunch — it’s the volume you love in the waist of a skirt, or the fun ruffles on a pillow sham.

Elastic is one of the great inventions of the modern era. Think about it: We no longer need suspenders to hold up our pants, or garters to hold up our socks and stockings. Getting squirmy babies dressed is way less of a struggle. And the stretch of elastic makes clothing easier to wear — not to mention way more comfortable — whether you're sewing underwear, building bathing suits or constructing workout clothes.
