But there's a much faster and easier way, using your Janome serger and the optional Gathering Foot G.

How To Gathering One Layer Of Fabric

  1. Attach Gathering Foot G go your serger.
  2. Set up for a three thread overedge stitch, with the needle in the left position. 
  3. Use a tight needle tension and a tight lower looper.
  4. Set your stitch length to 4. 
  5. Set your Differential Feed to 2. 
  6. Be sure the blade is in the UP position.
  7. Place your fabric under the foot and begin serging. You'll see the machine make perfectly even gathers.

You now have a piece of ruffled fabric to attach to your project.
