Sewing Notes

Well, today, I finished the skirt I've been working.   I gave up on the blind hem.    I think the fabric was a little too unwieldy (ie: hard to press and get it to actually stick), and I'd tried the hem so many times, I had a bunch of stitches I couldn't entirely pull out (that blind stitch is complicated on the wrong side!).    So I did a simple hem.  

And guess what?   It's slightly too tight.    Oh well.    At least I know what I'm dealing with, and  I shouldn't have any trouble modifying the pattern to make it loose enough.     And it was mostly a do in a day pattern.    With some different fabric, I might just accomplish that.
