Tips for gathering fabric

hi friends, here I am working in a pink dress that I wish to wear for my birthday, it is the pattern from vogue 9100.

I have to tell you that I love it and recomend it, but while having working in the gathering of the skirt, I had to go through several techniques like high tension in the sewing machine, gathering in the serger and finally I got to my favorite.
I didn't  invent it, I  remember Nancy Zieman talked about it in one of her programs and I decided to give it a try.
First, let's see a photo to have a clear picture of the idea.


Here it is, while Nancy says to use a zig zag stitch, I decided to finish the edges of my fabric so it doesn't unravel and in the thread of the lower loop, I pass my orange floss all the way until the end, from end to end and pull the tread. That is right! There is not science about it, but it won't ruin your fabric, you don't have to find the bobbin thread to make the pulling easier and much more, you don't have to struggle. 
This picture is much more close to the concept of my words, and next a picture of the accomplished goal.
