A question was emailed to me from a Tammy Brootner (thanks for letting me use your name!) from Indiana.
“What is the rule of thumb when it comes to hemming your skirts? I do all of my own hemming, as to save money.”
Tammy, GREAT question! Skirt hems should be parallel to the floor. I remember my mother used to always tell me that as a teenager. As I’ve mentioned before – with my height (5 feet!) I need to get everything hemmed, even skirts and dresses! If you’re doing the hemming yourself, make extra sure that the hem is super-straight. There’s nothing worse when a hemline is crooked. Straight and parallel to the floor – key components.
