Dee Skirt: The End

Took a special project class at Joann Fabrics to fix the skirt.

Unpicked the awful hem that I had made. Unpicked the folded over (pretty!) side seams.

Spent two hours of a three hour project class unpicking everything. I hate the seam ripper and I hate ironing. Ugh.

Learned how to do a blind stitch for the hem. (Stitch 04).

Learned how to prevent the fabric from fraying. (Fray check and Stitch 11).

Hand stitched the hole in the front of the skirt at the yoke. Looks ugly, like an inverted pleat. Unwearable. Will be adding a ribbon to hide that.

Teacher comments: Should have added interfacing to the waist for stability.
