In part 4 of my new top sewing tips series I’m chatting all about hems, specifically double fold hems.
Sewing a nice crisp, neat hem is an essential part of getting a good finish on your handmade clothes.
There are lots of different types of hems and choosing the right one will depend on the fabric you are using, and the style of garment you are making.
The double folded hem is a nice simple all rounder technique that will get you started on your dressmaking journey.
I’ll also explain how to use a hem marker, sew a narrow hem and prevent bunching at the hem in a-line skirts and dresses.
Follow along on my blog for show notes and step by step photo instructions.
