Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - Speedy Hemming Trick for Bias-Cut Frocks

This tip is very handy, I must say! Of course, Ruth is assuming you have a darning egg or ball (typically made of wood) at home. :) I actually have more than one, and used to use one to mend socks when I was much, much younger. But if you don't want to hang a newly-sewn bias skirt for several days before hemming, then you can either invest in one or use an item of similar weight (about 2 ounces or less - darning eggs are light weight - I would guess probably about the weight of a travel size container, in modern parlance).
