Since it's snowing and I'm not out digging my garden as I planned, I'll spend the afternoon watching a movie and hemming this for her. I told her how to go about getting it ready to hem, and she did that (trimmed off enough excess so we could work unimpeded). I stood her on a heavy-duty coffee table and pinned my way around her, then showed her how to block it and turn the hem under, and we discussed the look of the hem (it is supposed to be 1600s, so no machine stitching). She's at work now and I'll make a good start on it, anyway. Since she's planning in a minor in theater arts and costume design, these are interesting discussions.
