Church Lady Hint of the Day #2: Cassocks

I've decided to make little hints a regular feature on this blog (starting with yesterday's on the little bread bag closures). As the talents of your hostesses are Various and Sundry, expect quite a variety of hints, as well.

Without further ado, Today's Hint: Hemming a cassock.

One might assume that a cassock would have a fairly straightforward, flat hem. You would be wrong, however, as many have a slight curve to the hem. Not enough to pick up on while ironing it, but just enough to really throw you off while sewing. So, consider yourself warned if you are doing such alterations: keep the hem relatively narrow, pin very well, and employ the use of ease stitching, if necessary. Ask me how I learned this.
