On Todays Episode of Sew to Grow I am going to show you all the tools you will need for Hemming!!! I also introduce you to my favourite basic skirt patterns, and even give you a little sneak peak into my new skirt pattern: The Emerson Wrap.
Essential Skirt Patterns:
To start the show I Introduce you to the skirt that I am wearing: The A+ Skirt by Make It Perfect.
Finally, and most excitingly, is my new pattern: The Emerson Wrap!!! This pattern is currently in testing and will be launching early Feb. Send me a message to let me know your interest so I can let you know when I have the patterns printed and ready to ship. PDF will also be available.
How To Hem:
As a sewer, I am constantly asked to take up garments and hem pants. If only everyone knew how simple it really is. I show you just how easy hemming can be and what tools you will need.
First is a basic Seam Gauge. Not flash or fancy, but it gets the job done. A seam gauge is simply a small ruler that is used to measure inches or centimeters.
Finally, is the Dritz Ezy Hem Ruler. If you plan to hem curves, than this is definitely for you!!! I love making the April Rhodes Date Night Dress and I use this ruler for the sleeves. It makes a world of difference!!!
