Is there anything cuter than seeing a sweet squishy baby in Rockerbye??

I know I'm not the only one out there that loves a circle skirt but absolutely dreads the hemming of it.  I've heard through the grapevine of a different way to hem them so I gave it a try.  The results are in and it's love!  The way to do this is by using bias tape.  You can choose between either Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape which will give your skirt some structure almost like horsehair braid as you can see in the version I made for Sutton.  Or you can choose  Single Fold for more traditional style hem.  The...
