Linda (nice dress! Thanks I made it) suggested stabilising the hems with something like wonder tape. Well, it worked a treat. I made a top with the left-overs from the kimono.
Here’s the hems, stabilised with a tiny strip of wonder tape. The tape is fuesable both sides. I cut in half lengthwise. It was a bit tricky using the iron to fuse it, best to turn the steam off first ☺. It basically gums the hem to the body of the garment, making a small hem quite do-able without the silk chiffon getting eaten by the machine.
The top is loosely based on Tessuti’s Mandy boat tee, three more of them here!
Do you use the scraps of your favorite fabrics? Are you like me, can’t bear to through them out?
