I just finished some of these slip dresses for 14" Kish. The slip and pantaloons have lots of tucks and some lace. I used a wide blue silk embroidery ribbon for the waist. I'm happy with the way it turned out!

I do the tiny pintucks with a double needle and a pintuck foot. The foot just basically keeps the spacing even. Because I've used a light-weight lawn, I use the finest double needle, but they have larger sizes for heavier fabric.

The long tucks are done the hard way, lol.

Thanks, guys,

It's so great to get feedback. Sometimes you just need someone to look at what you've made and say, hey, that's alright.

I really appreciate it.
