    In a recent Instagram post you talked about cord gathering. Please explain this method. I’m an historical fiction author and dress in period clothing for personal appearances. I’m preparing to alter the skirt of a two piece dress (I lost weight and it’s now too big), and plan to make another dress before year’s end.
