Circular Hem / Seam Binding
Learn a very special technique that is used in the couture when hemming a circular hem. We will teach you the proper hem allowance, how to sew a gathering stitch and then how to best sew your seam binding for a flat hem look. We will also teach you the correct hand-stitching technique, as well as how to shrink your fabric for a perfect-looking hem.
Once you have mastered this hem finish, try your hand at the circular hem with a Hong Kong hem finish and the Circular Hem with a Lace Binding.
