How do you make a perfect hem?
A perfect hem has a perfectly straight (not wavy) fold, the same amount of folded fabric all the way across, and a straight stitching line close to the edge of the first fold, but never running over the folded edge.
What Stitch is best for hemming?
Stitch down the hem with a straight stitch in the center needle position; the default stitch length of 2.5 mm works well in most cases, but can be lengthened for heavier/bulkier fabrics.
How do you finish raw edges of fabric by hand?
You can use pinking shears, sew the edges with a zigzag stitch or mock overlock stitches, turn and straight stitch the material, or go for french seams to finish raw edges without using a serger.
What is the first step in stitching the hem?
Step 1: Press the hem twice more. Step 2: Insert the needle into the main fabric and bring it up at an angle through the hem fold. Step 3: Repeat, keeping the stitches even.
