Hemming with bias08:00
Today's post will be both informative yet attractive. If you don't like pink it will just be informative.
Firstly you'll need whatever you want to hem, I had a tea dress that I made.
Open one side of the binding and pin it all along the bottom edge, overlapping the ends. I tucked under the bottom edge so that it would be sealed when turned over.
Sew along the fold line and then I pinked the edge to get rid of any stray unravelly bits.
Turn the whole hem over and press along where you want your bottom crease. You could measure this. Wait, you should measure this. :/
Job done, pour yourself a cup of tea and dunk a rich tea (I wanted to say hob nob but they just don't have the structural integrity).
It does create quite a deep hem so make sure you're happy with that on the right side but it encloses all the raw edges and leaves a lovely finished hem.
I use bias on sleeveless tops instead of facings, necklines, cuffs, hems, all sorts really. If it can take this kind of laziness, I'm on it.
