How do you make a narrow hem?
When needing a narrow hem in the past, I would merely pull out my rolled hem foot and use that to make a narrow hem. (This is not a rolled hem using a serger but what my sewing machine company calls a rolled hem foot.) The rolled hem foot worked; however, my results varied…sometimes it would turn out quite nice and other times, it turned out quite wonky. So, why not try something different?
I have read about a different technique and when my facing called for a narrow hem, I thought why not.
I straight stitched quite close to the edge of the fabric. Then, the fabric was turned twice and stitched again.
I am quite happy with the results and may need to retire my rolled hem foot. I cannot say that this technique is faster. Quite the contrary, it really is slower. What it is, is more precise resulting in a finish that does not have problems.
