Hemming a Circle Skirt

This is the method I use to hem a circle skirt or anything that needs hemming that has a curve to it, it helps if your pattern requires you to cut with your grain on the bias, I know this is difficult as the skirt is almost circular but if you have some of it on the bias this helps by giving you a less lumpy edge 😊

STEP 1

Zig-zag your raw edge using regular zip-zag or using your edging foot/overlocker foot or your overlocker

image I have a overlocker foot which since I don’t own a overlocker machine is the one of the best sewing machine feet I own.

STEP 2

Sew a straight stitch about 1cm from the edge.

STEP 3

Iron along the line of stitches

STEP 4

Sew next to the zig-zag stitch trying to keep as straight as possible as this will show on the right side of your fabric.

STEP 5

Iron you skirt and that’s it

You can also do this method for a double fold you just don’t zig-zag your raw edge.
