Hemming a circle skirt tutorial

I was asked by a few people how I hemmed my Paris dress so I decided to film a quick tutorial while I was hemming my latest Zinnia skirt by Colette Patterns.

I used the toucan fabric that I bought in Paris for the outer skirt and lined it with some of the grey lining that I bought on my recent trip to Birmingham. I added pockets made from the contrasting pineapple fabric, and changed up the skirt waistband so that I created two pieces, rather than one folded over piece, and put the pineapples on the inner waistband too.

I found some bias binding that matched the orange on the outer fabric perfectly, so I created a bias bound hem on the lining, that is just visible when twirling!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the tutorial – I hope to do a few more of these in the future too, so please let me know if there is any specific subject you would like me to cover.

Hop on over to YouTube to check out the tutorial!
