Blind hem/ Lingerie stitch
For hems, curtains, trousers, skirts, etc.
Blind hem for stretch fabrics.
Blind hem/ lingerie for firm fabrics.
It takes practice to sew blind hems.
Always make a sewing test first.
Turn up the hem to the desired width and press. Fold back (as
shown in Fig. 1) against the right side of the fabric with the top
edge of the hem extending about 5 mm. (1/5") to the right side
of the folded fabric.
Start to sew slowly on the fold, making sure the needle touches
slightly the folded top to catch one or two fabric threads (2).
Unfold the fabric when hemming is completed and press.
