I hate hemming!!! When making a dress for my DD with a bias skirt I had the idea to use my serger with the differential feet set to do a slight gather along the bottom of the hem. When I turned it up as needed to hem, it took the extra fullness out perfectly. Then I simply used my blind hem foot and hemmed the skirt. I had a perfect hem very quickly.
