Daily Tip: Hem Your Pants in a Pinch

How many times have you wished you owned a sewing machine just to be able to hem slacks? It's not just the $20, it's also the time spent waiting for the tailor to do the job. 

Daily tip:
Cheat a hem and save $20

I long ago discovered the joys of Stitch Witchery, that darling and inexpensive little roll of white fabric tape. You simply cut to fit, align it along the interior of the hems you wish to create, fold the material over, and iron (with lots of steam) the sh*t out of it. Voila! It lasts through several washings, and can be peeled off if ever you wish to reverse your handiwork.
