I don't have a pintuck foot that fits my machine. So I took my metal invisible zipper foot and a 2mm double needle. I put the thread tension (on the disks where the thread goes through as you thread the machine) on the highest number.
Stitch length at 2mm as well.
Voila! beautiful pin tucks! I used the edge of the foot to determine the distance to the next pintuck. If you want them narrower or wider you'll have to come up with some other way of measuring.

It couldn't look better had you used a pintuck foot. Good job!

I'm sorry--how did you do this? Did you put the needle on the bottom of the foot? Where? Sounds innovative!
