Hemming is a necessary evil with sewing, but I thought I would share a simple way to hem a garment that adds another layer of interest and still saves a little time. What we will be doing is adding a trim to the bottom of the shirt or dress to be hemmed.
Cut two rectangle pieces of fabric the length of the bottom of the garment and twice as wide as the desired trim PLUS seam allowances on all sides.
Fold the trim in half RIGHT SIDE OUT. Iron (you could omit this part and it would give a more bubble effect on the skirt) and pin upside down to the bottom of the garment. Should look like this:
Sew in place and zig zag raw edges. Then admire your handiwork!
