DIY Circle Skirt (no-zip method); the seamstress is 5'5" tall and I am 5' on a good day.  Even so, I would not go with a hem this short because I do have junk in my trunk.  She must be using 54" wide fabric to be able to get 22" hems.  I had 45" wide fabric and squeaked 21" out of it.  I am going to the fabric store tomorrow to see if I can find a complementing lace or mesh to make it a peek-a-boo length. :)

A rolled hem is a very small hem made up of two folds. It can be really tricky to sew since each fold is teeny tiny. Many sewing machines have a rolled hem foot that curves and folds the fabric as you sew, but I find that way of sewing it to be very fussy and difficult to control. This is my personal preferred method for a rolled hem and I find it works perfectly every time.
