Emergency Repair | Taped Hem

Have you ever been rushing out of the house and discovered at the last minute that your hem had come out? Leaving for church yesterday, I noticed that about seven inches of my hem had come out. I didn’t have time to pull out a sewing machine or to hand-sew it.


Enter: tape. I grabbed a couple of pieces of regular adhesive tape (sorry, no fabric tape on hand) and carefully applied them to the hem. While I certainly do not recommend that you try hemming an entire skirt this way, it works great for a quick fix. 🙂 And, it held all day.

Do you have any quick repairs you’d like to share? Comment or contact me and perhaps I will feature your quick fix.
