In our Instagram feed, we sometimes share RTW (ready-to-wear) looks that we come across that would be easy to recreate with a Blank Slate Pattern.
The raw step hem look is so trendy right now! To do this on your Tillery, follow these steps:
- Lengthen the back pieces by about 1.5″ or 2″. (Or shorten the front ones instead).
- Make a mark on your front side pieces that same distance up from the bottom. For instance, if you lengthened the back 1.5″, make a mark 1.5″ above the bottom edge of the front.
- Sew the side seams with a normal seam instead of a flat-felled, stopping and backstitching at the mark you made on the previous step; finish seam allowances separately and press open.
- After completing the rest of the skirt construction, topstitch around the lower edge and side slit.
