|Mark and crease for a straight tuck.|
|On the line of the stitching, mark the position for the scalloped tucks at even distances.|
Sew the tuck with small running stitches to the first dot. Take an overhand stitch at the dot and pull the thread tightly.
|Continue across in this manner.|

I happen to be fond cute little details on garments and when I found this book at an indoor flea market a couple of weeks ago, I fell in love with the section on stitch details! I love the idea of using these cute scalloped tucks down the front of a blouse or at the hem of a skirt, just a small subtle detail on a garment can make it all the more precious and unique.
Hope everyone one has a GREAT week!
