I'm a sewing enthusiast in Beacon, New York, with a love of all things retro. This site is all about tutorials, tips, inspiration, and lots of spirited discussion about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. My first book, Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing, is now out from STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books! Also look for my line "Patterns by Gertie" from Butterick.
Here's the second part of this video tutorial on narrow-hemming a circle skirt! There are several ways to do this; this is the one that worked best for me. Another method is to use a narrow hemmer foot on your machine (check out this article for more info). Many people get great results from it, but I've definitely yet to master it! So this is a nice alternative that gives you greater control and is super easy. Let me know if you have any questions!
