When hemming any fabric that is sheer, the main aim is for your stitching to be neat - otherwise you will see it!
Use the easy tips below to achieve a perfect hem every time.
The secret is to use one of these - a 1/4 inch seam foot.
The little guide helps you sew straight, narrow hemming rows.
Fold over your hem allowance, minus 1/4 inch. Using the machine foot as your guide, sew your hem using a normal straight stitch.
Trim back your hem close to the first row of stitching, careful not to nick your fabric or stitching.
Press your hem and fold over so the the first row of stitching is sitting just over the fold edge.
Press a second time.
Turn your fabric over to the front side and again using your 1/4 inch foot, sew a second row of stitching.
You will be left with two very even rows of stitching with only one row showing through to the front side of your fabric.
