Hemming Methods

When ever possible have someone else help you with your hem line.

 

Hemming Methods:

-Blind Hem Stitch is found on most machines of today. This stitch gives a nice professional look and can be used on most fabrics.

-Top Stitch Hem can be used on most casual garments made from denim, khaki's, camouflage, and corduroy. It is a strong hem.  It must be sewn evenly because it is a stitch that will be shown.

-Slip Hem is great for thin fabrics.  Turn the free edge under 1/4" and tack and slip-hem the fold of the hem.  The fold can be stitched first on fraying fabrics.

-Overcast and Slip Stitch can be used on thick and fraying fabrics.  Overcast the free raw edge and tack it in flat 1/4" from the edge.  With the hem nearest to you, fold back the edge and slip stitch it, pulling up the threads gently after working about 8 stitches.  Make sure the hem is held flat and don't pull the stitches too tight.  There should be no sign of a hem at all on the pretty side of the garment with this stitch.
