Hi! What is the make and model of your sewing machine?

If you are hemming a dress, how do you start ans stop to make the hem continuous? Do I need to take the seam apart? How do you also turn a corner?

Hi, Linda! As you sew to about 1 inch from your starting point, you’ll see the fabric fold itself over without any assistance from the foot. Remove your fabric from the foot funnel and simply top stitch the remaining inch or so of hem.

Wow! Great tutorial, I cannot wait to get my hemmer foot! I was going to get a serger specifically to do hems (for years I did them myself always one day hoping for that serger) but a friend suggested this foot since I can save so much money. I love this! Thank you.
