When drafting patterns for skirts, it is important to ensure that the hemline of the skirt is slightly curved to keep the hemline even and prevent the skirt from drooping on the sides. This tutorial shows you how to do this without having to use rulers or calculate any measurements. I always use this method for my skirts and dresses and have not seen any tutorials for it here so I thought it might be useful for someone.
