This is the hem that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend.

Cidell started sewing it, not knowing what it was, and she’ll continue sewing it forever just because…Seriously. It took me almost an hour just to press the hem of McCall 5314. Every time I would get to a seam, I would think ‘almost there’ and see there was more skirt. Then I started sewing it on the machine and it was the same thing. All. Over. Again.
I chose to do a fairly narrow hem that I just eyeballed. I really dislike hemming. I dislike hemming for many reasons. Well, not many, just two.
1. I have tendonitis in my right hand and am supposed to wear a cock-up splint (that is the worst name for a brace. Try ordering that and see how you feel) for any activity that would stress my tendon (anything requiring a grip or repetitive like typing, sewing, painting, shoveling snow, etc.) so it’s difficult for me to hold a needle for more than 30 seconds. If I do, I’ll have a stiff hand and odd pains in my wrist for several days. So everything gets hemmed on my machine or my mom hems it for me.
2. I’m lazy.
