The first step is to prep the ban roll - you will use it to sew the seam, but you will remove it afterwards, so you can use it over and over again (hence buy a large amount, like 5 yards, to cover the maximum amount of hemming you'd ever need for a very full skirt, and you only need to prep once). Start by trimming off one edge, where the threads are woven a little tighter.

    I could never find ban roll but I did find blind tape @ a ware house sale for ADO. I bought 100 meters for only $3. It’s made of very stiff nylon and works wonderfully. I’ve hemmed two prom dresses this morning in the time it normally would have taken to just iron the hem in place. Thanks so much for this tip!
