Welcome to another edition of Tutorial Tuesday! Today I will be showing you how to sew a machine hem.
I am including the photo below to better explain what I briefly touched on in the video. Notice how the hem portion is barely sticking out from underneath the dress portion. This is how you will want your dress to be situated when you begin sewing with the hem stitch. (Also called the "blind hem" stitch because it is not meant to be visible.)
If you watch the needle in the video closely, you will see the back and forth action I talk about.
And please, do excuse my repetitive repeating! Verily, verily, I tend to repeat things I consider important. Call it a hazard of mothering many children.
(My sewing machine is a Brother PC420 FS Project Runway Sewing Machine.)
