Gathering, puff or shirr foot for a White Rotary vintage sewing machine and some other vintage machines. This attachment will gather a single layer of fabric. For a fine gather use a short stitch length, to increase the fullness, as shown in the first photo, the stitch length was increased to the longest length. For even greater fullness you can tighten the top tension.

This attachment is a top mounting foot, see third photo, the forked end slips into the presser bar of the White Rotary machine and tightens in place.

Fourth photo shows two rows of full shirring to do puffs. If stitch length is decreased gathers will not be so tight and rows can be closer together for light shirring. It's a good idea to do samples of work and label them with your settings so you can repeat at another time.

The last photo shows my 1917 White Rotary treadle sewing machine used for the stitching.

Everything I sew is made on treadle sewing machines, haven't used an electric machine since 1993. Sewing on these vintage iron ladies and gents is soothing and peaceful with just the gentle rocking of your feet and they just need lint cleaned out and a light oiling for servicing, they are incredible! My 40 page book, "Treadle Sewing Machines, Clean and Use an Iron Lady, is available at my Etsy shop.
