Meghan from The Sewing Geek has written a tutorial showing how to make a pleated hem band for a skirt. Instead of vertical pleats, like ruffles, these pleats are horizontal. It’s a lovely finish for a skirt hem. It would also be a pretty finish for home dec items, like a pillowcase or the ends of a table runner. Go to The Sewing Geek for the how-to.
