Welcome back to the Beginner’s Guide to Sewing! In episode 15 we learn a simple technique for lengthening hems by adding a hem facing. This technique can be used on pants, skirts, dresses, shirts…even curtains and table clothes. It’s even a great way to add a fun decorative touch to your projects.
This skill is particularly helpful for those with children, as extending the pant length will extend life of your children’s clothing.
Feel free to have fun with contrasting fabric and colors for a bold, custom look.
