This is a wonderful way to add vintage touches to your sewing garments. These techniques are from a 1950s sewing guide for White sewing machines attachments. The newer machines also come with attachments so it shouldn't be a problem adapting these techniques with your machine. Get creative and sew away!
Wouldn't this technique be lovely on a blouse, I have two vintage patterns currently that would adapt well to this technique. The first is a 1950s Advance pattern where the tucking is used in the yoke area. Add some delicate lace and perhaps a lacy collar for a bit of a Victorian look.
