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.
