Let’s know a little more about…

First, you should know that these little fabric folds are sewn along the entire length or a fraction of the size.


These sewing details can go horizontally or vertically and are generally folded in the same direction as the fabric’s thread.

Being a decorative element, tucks should always be on the front of the garments. 

Although in some cases, such as controlling the amplitude, they can be inside the garment.

The ideal is to work with linen, poplin, cotton, crepe, gabardine, chiffon, or flannel.

But you can use light or medium weight fabrics to make garments with this type of seams.


The garments that are characterized by these seams are the guayaberas.
