But less delicacy is needed for this tip: use a laser level! See, it's like carpentry, you can explain. We need things plumb and square.
Simply set up the level on a stool or other item of appropriate height, stand next to it, and turn slowly as your cooperative partner inserts pins (or makes marks) on the bright shiny line.
I want you to know I don't think only men can or do use tools. Of course a female helper can make great use of this tip, too. It just seems that they are often in short supply when hemming time rolls around.
How ironic that I am trying to figure out how best to hem a lined robe that I'm working on. I've got it on a dressform and could easily use the chalk marker in the usual way, but I really like your idea.ReplyDelete
Glad you like it, Tom. It really is more accurate and, especially since your robe is on a dressform and you don't need a helper, easier.Delete
That's a stitch! (oh, no pun intended. LOL)ReplyDelete
I love it!
This is very helpful! I have a super hard time marking hems.ReplyDelete
