Learn how to sew a Hong Kong hem finish on a wool fabric sampler. A Hong Kong hem finish can be used on wools or any light to medium weight fabric. You will learn the tricks of the trade when sewing a bias silk organza strip to your hem’s edge. This hem finish is truly the sign of a better garment. We will also teach you how to complete the hem with a hand stitched catchstitch.
