Rolled Hem Master on a Convertible Dress

Image from
Yesterday I added a new string to my bow, by mastering the art of using a rolled hem foot on my sewing machine. OK, to some people this may not seem like such a great achievement but this is coming from the girl who basically sticks to regular straight stitch, and maybe if she's lucky the odd zig zag here and there. Button hole feet are a whole other game all together, so I am feeling quietly pleased with myself.
All this was in aid of helping my friend to make four bridesmaids dresses yesterday (yes four, in one day). They are actually really easy, and are based on the good old convertible dress/infinity dress that apparantly has been around since the 70's!? I was thinking I might put up a 'how to' for them on here... so let's see how I go with that!

See now I will happily do a buttonhole but I have no idea how to do a rolled hem, it's always sounded way too scary! That dress looks really neat - I've never heard of them but a tutorial would be interesting to read (especially if you can teach me how to do a rolled hem!)
