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.
