Video tutorial: Add horsehair braid to a skirt hemHave you drooled over photos of beautiful vintage or vintage-inspired dresses with the beautifully shaped circle skirt?  There’s a good chance that there’s horsehair braid sewn into the hem to give it that shape.  Professor Pincushion shares a video tutorial telling about horsehair braid and showing how to add it to the hem of a skirt.  Go there to view her video tutorial.

    Not only do I drool over these skirts but I love to sew & wear them! And I have a crinoline to wear with too. Horse hair is a great idea to give my skirts more umph when the crinoline is too much for the situation!

    Thanks Anne.

    (P.S. I’m friends with Denise F. on facebook. My profile pic is me twirling in a dress with said circular skirt and crinoline.)
