Gathers:

Definition: As the name suggests, gathering is nothing but a sewing technique to add fullness and volume to the garment. In this process, a piece of fabric is folded or bunched up together manually or using a machine and sewn on which results in shortening the width of the cloth thus adding volume. Common types of gathering techniques include pleating and shirring.
