Old school seamstresses say you can tell the quality of a garment and its maker by inspecting the hem. Clearly, this is some important stuff. Originally, we wanted to introduce hems and elastic in together, but decided each subject needed its own video.
In Episode 6, we’re going to bombard you with information. You learn all about the most basic hems, as well as a few tips for sewing knit hems. I prefer to mark my hems with a basting stitch, which is the method I use in the video. However, feel free to use a traditional marking tool.
If you want to skip around, simply fast forward to these time markers:
