Hey Peeps! I get asked this questions all the time ….. “How do you level the hem on your dresses?”. So I thought I would make this video trying out all the different methods I’ve heard of and see which one/ones I liked the best. Mr Pinchy Pinchy Device is a definite winner but the flat lay method is also brilliant and you don’t need any special equipment to do it! Let me know which is your favourite and if you have a method I haven’t tried.
