If you're going to sew your own clothes — or even alter store-bought ones — you have to know how to hem. The good news is it's a super easy skill to pick up, as the bottom edge is simply turned up and stitched into place. (Things get more complicated when dealing with extras like lining, a kick pleat or a cuff.) The method below can be used whether you're hemming a dress, a pair of pants, a skirt, a sleeve — anything you put your mind to!

Whenever I find a knit fabric I like, I purchase 2 yards, without a specific item in mind. Most times those knit fabrics become a top or T-shirt, and consequently there's a small amount remaining — just the right amount for a simple pull-on skirt.
