Special Finishing Details

ROLLED HEM
(on soft sheer fabrics) Hand Rolled Hem

  • Make a line of stitching on hemline. (Usually a strip of tissue paper under the fabric facilitates handling.)
  • Trim away excess fabric very close to stitching line (about 1/16 inch).
  • Starting at a seam, begin rolling edge over line of stitching with thumb and forefinger of left hand.
  • Put needle through roll, then alternately catch a thread of the fabric and put the needle through the roll. Space stitches about 1/4 inch apart. After every few stitches, draw up thread to secure the roll.
