I haven’t got a cough, I really want to talk about hems. Or at least let somebody else talk about them .
Colette Patterns Hawthorn Dress
You know that moment when you’ve made something and you can’t wait to wear it (or give it away or throw it in the bin depending on how the project has gone for you *bitter experience talking*) and then you remember you have to hem the thing. What a faff.
Anyway, the lovely people at Colette Patterns have been doing a ‘Sept – hem -ber’ (enough with these puns!) on their blog and showing you multiple ways of finishing off your hems to a high standard.
They have kindly produced a free hemming guide as an E-book and you can download it for free here. How generous!
Do you do anything fancy with your hems or do you just try and get it over with as quickly as possible? Do you have one of those puffer things to mark the hem level? – seriously, I’m thinking of getting one and want to know if it would be worthwhile, bearing in mind I haven’t got a level floor in my whole house.
