272 centimetres of hem!
I always said that I wanted to wear this skirt to the theatre… and so I was determined to finish the hand sewn hem yesterday so that I could wear it last night. When I was in the midst of despair about how far I had to go I measured it – 272 centimetres around the bottom. That’s just shy of 4 times what it is around the waist! Thankfully, I was sewing it at mum’s and therefore chilli could not assist me with this task. As you can see from the camera in the mirror job, she couldn’t assist with the photography when I got home either!
