    With a tiered skirt, I prefer to adjust the skirt from the waist line and keep the seams of the tiers parallel to the floor. It is a bit more work if the skirt is already made. If you are making the skirt from a pattern the adjustment can be made in the pattern or on your muslin. It provides a much nicer look.

    I just watched how to hem a skirt and your demonstrator did this from the bottom edge of the skirt making it very obvious that the skirt was hemmed. Why not shorten each flounce the required amount so that it never looked as though it was hemmed. That is the professional way to do this hem and the way I would do for it any client.

      Hi Maria. If the skirt was too long and you were hemming it as a way to shorten it-you are correct that it would be better to shorten each section so there isn’t one that is significantly smaller than the rest. For this tutorial, we were intending to demonstrate how to hem a skirt that was just sewn, and the last thing to do would be to hem it. The instructor was also demonstrating how to use a tool such as a hem marker.
