Sorry it's been so long since my last sewing post! I need to try and stay on top of this more cause this skirt's been done for a week now. When i last left you here I had only done the overlocker stuff as my sewing machine was in the shop. I had attached the waistband to skirt and finished of all the edges, ready to add my zipper and hem.

The only thing left to do was the hem. I decided I wanted to try out a blind hem, I'm not sure if this is recommended for circle skirts due to the extra fullness in the hem, but I went for it anyway. I also wanted a larger hem, so there is about 2 inches of fabric folded in there. Because of the extra fullness I did 2 rows of gathering stitches to ease in the fullness. I have a blind hem foot that I bought in a pack and hadn't used yet. To be honest blind hems always scared me a bit so I never tried it. Turns out it isn't that hard.

You can see from the hemmed picture that there is a lot of fullness in the hem.

Here's a picture of the final product! Not super well styled but this was what I was wearing that day.

This skirt is super confortable. Like lounging around the house material. The Waistband hits at just the right point for me and doesn't roll. It's quite stable but still has a bit of stretch. I;d like to style it for a more evening appropriate look, so i may add to this later.
Thanks for stopping by!
