Hemming a straight skirt, or pair of straight legged pants, doesn't usually pose much of a problem, right? You mark the hem and turn up the hem allowance, and stitch either by hand or machine. But when you're turning up the hem of a flared skirt (or bootcut pants), it's sometimes a little trickier. Sooner or later, you find out you've got more fabric in the hem allowance than you have room for. What to do? Here's one way to handle it.
pins, thread, seam gauge or other measuring tool, hem tape (optional)
