The Blind Hem



The Blind Hem is probably one of the MOST utilized hems (other than active wear/ cover stitch hems) and most people don't even know it. I know when I was starting out (and for longer than I'd care to admit) I was intimidated by the BLIND HEM.


The TRUTH is.... it is SUPER EASY. It is very quick and once you have it down you will be surprised how many things you want to hem. Most alterations shops also use this method, so once you nail this down, imagine bringing in a little cash on the side by hemming garments.


Let's get to it!

For this example I have serged the hem edge with white so you can see it. This is the bottom edge of your garment.... Skirt or pants/ shorts hem.
