Holy cow, the SAL is flying right on by!! Today is day 5, and we are hemming today. If you want, you can also topstitch your ruffles/tiers. 🙂 I opted not to topstitch the white floral skirt in the videos, but I did topstitch the blue floral!
My daughter was super excited about the matching scrunchie I made her, too. We have lots of woven hair/accessory patterns if you’re in the market for some:
- Hem allowance is 1/2″ and is already included on the pattern pieces
- If you use a fabric with an existing trim/decorative edge, your skirt will finish 1/2″ longer than intended unless you make the adjustment while cutting your fabric out; I didn’t adjust because I’m hoping my daughter can wear both skirts for a while 😉
- Be sure to finish your raw edge before hemming; you can finish a number of different ways, but I opted to just use my serger
Want to sew along with me? Check out today’s video!
If you have questions about hemming, you are always welcome to post in our SAL group so we can help you! Be sure to check in each day during the SAL, and look for daily posts to enter our giveaways. We can’t wait to see what you create this week!
