I have been using Pellon EK130 knit iron-on interfacing for years on both knits and wovens. It's light and doesn't affect the drape of fabric. I cut the interfacing in 1/2" strips. I ironed the strips onto the hem of the skirt, turned up the hem and sewed. It made the hem crisp and neat and sewing so much easier then when I used the Steam-a-seam 2 and didn't gunk up my needle.
I really like how this navy skirt turned out and can't wait for cooler weather to wear it with boots and a sweater.

Good news about my foot, between all the wonderful advise of my fellow sewers and my continual "hippy" doctoring, my foot is starting to feel much better. I wear a compression style sock during the night, do foot stretches in the morning before I get out of bed, wear good shoes ALL the time, rub on some essential oils, started some foot stretching exercises on my pool deck stairs, tennis ball rubs on my foot and just being mindful when my foot feels tired and/or sore. Hopefully in another month or or so I can update that my foot is healed.
I'm off to sew up something wonderful...............
Until next time...............
