Fraying the newly washed and dryed hem is easy peasy. Just pull a thread and start creating the fray. I like a 1/2-1" edge of fray.
Now it is time to iron your hem up to begin stitching. Try turning the fabric up on the outside of your skirt to reveal the hem. This gives a nice exposed look.
You might want to use yarn or a contrasting color of waxed thread or even jute. Stitch like crazy. Stitch all of those barmy pleats down. Create the line you want for your skirt. Mine turned out to be sort of a bubble skirt after I nailled down all the pleats. GOOD BYE pleats.
