Hello everyone

!I am glad to share this technique with you today.

If you have visited my website, you have probably noticed I really like circle skirts. In fact, most of my favorite free patterns are using this technique.

For example, I have used them for the Arizona dress, the Amalia dress and more recently for the Paula dress.

I also love peplum tops. A lot! :) All those hemline projects can be finished by adding a bias tape ( the Peplum top pattern) or by using a narrow edge serger stitch (the Maria Dress pattern).

However, not everybody has a serger or like the idea of the bias tape.That is why I wanted to add this tutorial with a simple way to make a round hem. Here we go : - See more at: http://www.onthecuttingfloor.com/home/how-to-sew-...
