Marking tucks
Is there an easy way?

I'm wondering if there's an easy way to mark the tucks, such as
those in Simplicity 3563? Thread basting is my first thought, but
I don't like having to sew over my basting thread.
Any thoughts? Thanks, Billie

Looks a bit like marking darts. Could you draw chalk lines, pin, stitch and brush away the chalk?

Sigrid made a BWOF tuxedo blouse and used her tracing wheel to mark the tucks. Definitely how I'm going to do it next time.

I use the tracing whell and colored transfer paper to do it.

Thanks ladies, but I forgot to mention that these tucks are on the outside, so tracing paper is out, and the fabric is off-white denim.

Sigrid's doesn't use tracing paper, just the wheel. So, it's literally just 'creasing' the fabric.
