We made it to day 5 of the Runabout Romper Sew Along. Today is probably the easiest day. We are finishing the bottoms by hemming or adding the cuffs.
I opted for the dress do I will be hemming the curved edge. We have a P4P University blog with tips for hemming knits. You can read about it here. The most important thing about hemming knits with your coverstitch or sewing machine is to PRESS, press and press some more!
If you are sewing the joggers will will add ankle cuffs. Mark the quarters of the ankle opening and the cuffs. Stitch the cuffs on, matching the quarter point, making sure that you stretch the cuff but not the jogger.
Tomorrow we will be working on the waistband and finishing the project. Watch the video below and when you finished today’s steps, post a picture of your progress in the day 5 comments of the RRD album.See you soon!

Hi, My name is Esther and I tried to figure out how to contact you but couldn’t. I was wondering if you could do size 4X and 5X leggings. I make them for friends. Can email me the cost if you can do it at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much.
