|Quick, before I blow Away!|
I didn't really feel like paying for the fabric or going to the effort of making a skirt just to scallop the edges so I hit the charity shops finding this New Look pencil skirt for £1. Not arguing with fate it came home. The first thing I did was unpick the bottom hem and press it flat, ready to install the hem.

I used a CD as my template for the scallops. Later I realised that I could have done something cool with pi to make a neater edging but it didn't come to mind at the time. I drew the edge on to a piece of paper first. This gave me an idea of the depth of the scallop so I could cut off a strip that deep from the unpicked hem. This would but the facing.

|No, there isn't anything to see.|
