Hemming of Body Linens

Today I am hemming body linens again. My furry helper is ill & this sort of sewing is quite soothing. No idea what day I am at now in the second round of the century challenge.

Sewing the enclosed seam flat.

Tacking down the edge of the partlet prior to pinning the second fold into place. Although it seems like extra work, I do it this way because I have a lot of issues with my hands and it hurts to sew. Any extra, uneccessary fabric manipulation just means unnecessary pain.


  1. Sorry your sewing helper is not well. You have my sympathy. Fionna

  2. Thank you! She has pancreatitis and an infection. As a result, we have also discovered some kidney issues which are worrying :(
