Welcome back to the Beginner’s Guide to Sewing! Originally, we wanted to introduce hems and elastic in the same video, but there was so much information to cover, we decided to pull a Hollywood and break it up into 2 parts.
In Episode 6, you’ll learn about the parts of a hem and how to sew a simple Double Fold Hem, Blind Stitch Hem (by hand and by machine), and a Single Fold Hem with a finished edge. Then, it’s all about the tips and tricks for sewing hems on knitted fabric.
We’ll also introduce you to a narrow hem, picot hem, faced hem, and bound hem.
You’ll learn how to use a basting stitch to mark your fold and hemlines. You can still use a traditional marking tool; basting is just another way to do it.
