Summer Sewing for Sunny (and rainy) Days

From classic cut-offs to skirts sewn from scratch, within minutes you too can have beach-ready wear that fits like a glove, and I'll show you how. [read on!]

With the jersey knits the fabrics don't unravel so I didn't hem mine. For a more complete look you definitely can - it can be a bit harder than hemming non-stretch fabrics so you have to be careful not to pull on the fabric as you hem it. Also, serging the hems on a project like this would look fantastic, especially if you used a contrasting thread. Thanks for reading!!
