Hems are funny things. To get an even hem, you have to measure carefully but you also have to take into account the grain of the fabric – especially if you’re hemming a circle skirt. Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews shows her method for marking and cutting a skirt or dress hem so it’s straight. If you’re sewing a circle skirt or full dress, check out her tutorial so you can see how to get a nice straight hem.
