Okay, I am working on a prom dress, it’s a separate. Here’s the top and here’s the skirt. The skirt is a little too long, so I had her put it on and marked and pinned to where she wants it. And I already marked it with the blue disappearing ink. Now, I just need to take the pins off and sew it. I marked this a quarter of an inch lower than it should be so I have an allowance for the hem. This would be just a rolled hem, but I don’t like to use the rolled hem foot. I just do it manually. Okay, almost there! It’s a full dress! Next is, I’m going to cut it off! Just cut it all the way around, and turn it over again and sew it. Almost there! See? Look how full this skirt! A lot of material there! It took me a while to cut it all around. There! It’s a lot of material!!! See that! Just goofing around!! I have a scarf! And then just turn it once more and sew…sew it on the edge. “Don’t sew your fingers!” my daughter said. And just sew it all the way around and then start with the lining. The lining…is we have to do the same. It’s been marked. Now, we’ll take the pins off… and do the same thing like what we did with the outer shell. So I pinned and marked the lining half an inch shorter than the outer shell. This has two layers of lining but, I won’t show everything so it’ll keep my video a little shorter. Just to give you an idea! Now, I’m going to cut this thing off, just like what I did earlier. Being careful not to cut my fingers off. Just keep cutting until you get to the other end. Just cut it all the way around! See how much I cut? Just enough to turn it over and then sew it like that. Here it is!!! All layers are hemmed. I got all three layers hemmed up. and that’s what it look like. I want to show you how it looks. Then after this I’m gonna iron it. And the third layer is right here. Okay!!! It took me an hour to hem all three layers. But there’s a lot of fabric here. Usually, it would take me… for a normal prom dress or
bridesmaids dress would only take me 30 minutes to do it. But it’s done! This is what the hem look like after I ironed it, or press it. Here it is!!! It look so good on her! It’s gorgeous! So she’s happy with the hem, look at the length. And this is Jiex, sharing the joy of sewing one stitch at a time!
