Ruffler foot vs gathering foot

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Which would you get first for casual sewing? What's the actual difference? I've decided that part of why I haven't made dd a dozen little dresses is that I detest and suck at basting-style gathering.

The ruffler. No contest. Once you have worked out how to use it you'll be looking for all kinds of gathered up stuff to sew.

IME the ruffler gives much more obvious results than the gathering foot.

Here's a blog with pics of both which might help you decide.

I'm moving soon and can't justify getting a spiffy new sewing accessory right this instant. SAD!!!

Yeah, this thing is even better than I thought it would be and I had pretty high hopes for it.
