I’m working diligently on a self-drafted, knee length pencil skirt…. Using Helen Armstrong’s text (the 1987 version) on pattern making, I took my own measurements last weekend and spent some time creating a skirt sloper. Yes, I’m weird. I find math and drafting to be relaxing…..
About 6 months ago, I bought this amazing red boucle from The Needle Shop. My neighbor saw it and suggested that I should use the selvedge fringe as the hem. My only hesitation: the white selvedge threads near the fringe (see below.)
What say you, readers of this very small blog? I could also just hem the skirt in the “regular” way….
