Hand Rolled Hem Finish
This lesson is how to sew a hand rolled hem finish, a beautiful hem finish used on sheers such as georgette, chiffon and on other lightweight fabrics. You will learn the tricks of the trade on how to handle the fabric and then how to meticulously roll the edge so that you can create a slipstitch. This hem is definitely labor intensive but has all of the caché necessary for a couture garment.
By practicing this sampler, you will quickly learn how to use your fingers to curl the fabric edge and then how to get the right mount of tension on the thread for slipstitching.
