Here’s a quick “how to” for sewing Blind Hems. You often see this hem on pants or fancy dresses. It’s a terrific little technique for sewing a hem so that your stitches are almost invisible on the right side of the garment.
Finish the raw edge of the hem.
Turn the hem up the required amount and iron.
Turn your outfit right side up, then flip the hem allowance to the top, so that only the finished edge
of the hem sticks out beyond the garment.
Turn the whole thing over.
Stitch with a blind hem stitch. The straight stitches are sewn on the finished hem and the little zigzag
stitches catches the garment.
Fold the hem down and iron. There will be small stitches on the right side of the fabric, but if you
match your cotton it will be almost invisible.
