Special Finishing Details

SOFT COUTURIER HEM

  • Soft Couturier Hem To give a soft look to a hemline, it is usually necessary to put a bias strip in the hem. Depending on the fabric, underlining, interfacing, organza, or lamb's wool may be used.
  • Cut bias strip long enough to reach around the hem. The width of the strips depends on the hem depth. The strip should be wide enough to go from about 3/4 inch on the hem to 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the top edge of the hem.
  • Blind stitch a short distance away from the hem fold on the hem-side to hold the bias strip in place at the fold.
  • Blind stitch the top edge of the strip to the underlining of the garment, being careful not to catch the outer fabric in the stitching.
  • Hem the garment, stitching the hem to the underlining.
