Featured in the PR book!
When I'm pinning a ruffle onto the main garment, I used red-headed pins for the centers, quarter marks, and eights on long ruffles. I don't use them anywhere else. That way, when it comes time to even out the gathers, I know which pins need to stay put -- red pins mean "STOP: Don't move me!"

I also pin with the tip pointing in, heads out, so the pins don't get lost amongst the gathers.

"Smacks forehead with hand" What a great idea and amazingly simple! I should have thought of it years ago......but since I didn't, I am sure glad that you shared it!

Such a great idea! The same could be used for easing a sleeve - pinning at the notches. Thanks!
