1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do I avoid hems that flip? on: December 08, 2011 01:08:54 PM
Interesting... that implies that it is something about the turn-of-cloth that makes them flip up.  Might try this on some of the shorts/skirts that are perfectly well-behaved other than the flip.

Other than the hem tape, do you do anything in particular to get the hems not to flip up?
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How do I avoid hems that flip? on: November 27, 2011 07:26:01 PM
So, I am doing laundry, and finding once again that there is a reason I only wear certain items once in a blue moon- they look great when I wear them, but when I wash them, they come out with every hem folded back on itself.  Even items that come out otherwise smooth have completely flipped-up hems, which then require me to :shudder: iron them in order to restore them to wearability.  Even weirder, the fold isn't anywhere in the fold comprising the hem itself, it is usually just above the seam line, as if the tiny amount of fabric above the seam is somehow super-repulsive to the main fabric or something.  Huh

Why do the hems on some items do this when other (seemingly identical) hems do not?  Is it something I can avoid through careful construction on items I create?  Some trick to washing or drying or wearing that will prevent items that have this tendency from actually doing this?  It is ridiculous to have to iron things like skorts and jean shorts just because of the seams doing this- they are supposed to be fun, easy-wear items!  I am hoping there is some solution that will make it easier to keep certain items in high rotation instead of treating them almost like my dry-clean items.  Undecided

Thanks in advance for all advice!  Grin

Wow, I so suck.  SexyLilSushiRoll has only gotten a bit under half her stuff, but I loaded the package up with goodies to make up for it- she's being WAY nice about this.

Everyone's stuff is so cool!  I am glad this swap went so well. :-)

I really like my swag!  Just not doing very well right now, so I asked SexyLilSuhiRoll to post pics for me.  Thanks for both!

 Grin So glad you're happy with it!  I don't know why, but when I have swap anxiety, things look so much better in the receiving person's post.  Seeing it here, I'm not sure why I was so worried! Wink

YKYACW your first reaction to your battery going dead and needing a jump start is that it gives you more reason to go to a SnB out of your normal area; the extra highway driving will help your battery recharge!

At least you have 8 of them.  You get to restart the prettiness a bunch of times. Smiley

I'm not usually a "pretty soap" girl (I prefer body wash), but that is a really nice soap.  I wouldn't even mock it if I saw it in a friend's bathroom! (I'm not evil, we just tease each other about our "girly" stuff. :-)  I never figured out how people actually use soap like that- I wouldn't want to ever get it wet, it's too pretty as it is.
