 2. Fold again the hem allowance (2 cm my case) and press.

 3. Back stitch first sew all around and then at end back stitch.
 4. Done. This is how it looks before ironing.

5. You can iron the skirt and finish it. I however decided to add a trimming at the hem (optional).

 6. Start with 3cm away from side seam leaving a tail of 5 cm trimming.
 7. Sew from the right side of fabric(its easy to see how much to leave). Dont need to pin here.
 8. After fully all round adding the trimming stop sewing at 3 cm away from side seam you started at and leave 5 cm tail of trimming.
 9. Now just pinch the 2 sides together so it correctly covers the 6 cm unsewn area
 10. Sew the 2 trimmings together vertically.

 11. Cut after the stitching line and again sew the 6cm you left over the hem edge.
12. Finish!!!
