verykerryberry #sewingtutorialmachinedhem this is the final part for an A-line machined double hem. On the WS stitch the hem close to the fold on the ease stitch line. I used the blind hem foot on my machine, it works in a similar way to an edge stitch foot; a longer sewing stitch is good too e.g. 3. You could also hand sew the hem if you are so inclined ! 6d

verykerryberry #sewingtutorialmachinedhem this is for a A-line machined double hem part three. On the WS of the skirt, turn the raw edge under along the ease stitch line and press - this will be the depth of your finished hem, mine is 1/2". If the ease stitches ate too tight, smooth out some of the fullness. Final part coming up in a minute! 6d
  •   tinkerfrog Have you ever hemmed an a-line by filing the hem up the wrong direction, pressing only at the side seams and marking an angle where the stitch line is, and stitching your hem on the marked line to avoid any fullness? That's how my mom taught me and it works great! Does that even make any sense? 6d
  •   tinkerfrog Flipping. Not filing! 6d
  •   verykerryberry @tinkerfrog nifty method! I think it would well on something with a relatively small circumference on the hem and definitely with trousers and kids clothes that would work really well! 6d
  •   wanderingt So that's what that ruler is for! I never knew 6d
  •   verykerryberry @wanderingt one of my most used tools in dressmaking 6d

verykerryberry #sewingtutorialmachinedhem this is for a A line machined double hem part two. 1. On the WS of the skirt, press the crease line and gently pull on the ease stitch line so the turned up fabric is reduced a little to match the hem- the more flared the skirt, the more you will need to pull up the ease stitch line. Part three coming up in a minute! 6d

verykerryberry #sewingtutorialmachinedhem this is for a A line machined double hem- mine is 3/4" in total. 1. Sew a line of ease stitches 1/4" from base of skirt- you need a long stitch length and don't secure beginning and end. 2. Use Hera marker and ruler to mark the fold of the main hem, mine is 1/2" from ease stitching. Part two coming up in a minute! 6d
