Wide Straight-grain Hem Finish
This lesson will teach you how to sew a wide straight-grain hem, a hem finish that is used on sheer fabrics such as georgette, chiffon and organza. We’ll teach you how to carefully fold the fabric and then how to create a blind stitch hem to hide your stitches for a beautiful effect. You can use this hem finish on sleeves, pockets, dresses, skirts and pants, or wherever you have an area that is cut on straight grain. Learn how the pros do it and once you’ve mastered this sampler you will be ready to try it on an actual garment.
