Last weekend I started working on Calvin's scout pants. They were in desparate need of hemming and I had been taking Jennifer Stern's "All Hemmed Up" class on PatternReview.com.
I learned quite a few things in her class and wanted to try some of the techniques as well as use my Ellissimo's blind hem stitch and it's blind hem foot with the adjustable screw on it.
All in all it went well. The stitch and foot on the machine are great. I did figure out that the tension needed to be adjusted or loosened. I turned it down to a tension of 3.2-3.4.
Finally! The Simplicity 2343 skirt
