I have been reading these couple of sentences repeatedly, but I can’t get my head around it.
The instructions are referring to the hem of the jacket:
1: On lower front edges, turn facings forward again. Turn hem allowance to inside and press.
Me: Do I only press the hem allowance of the facing, not the lining?
2: Topstitch from 2cm hem edge, beginning and ending 7 mm from front edges and not catching lining. Topstitch 7 mm from front edges.
Me: I really can’t visualise this topstitching. Is it only happening on the facing, but not catching onto the front fabric? I’m confused :(
3: Turn lining under along hem edge and press fold edge lightly.
4: Push up in a shallow curve and pin to hem allowance.
Me: Pin the lining allowance onto itself?
5: Sew facings and lining in place.
Me: How do I do that?
6: Lay extra length of lining down and press lightly.
Me: Now this is completely unclear to me…
Well, as you can see I really need some help figuring out the jacket hems!
Can someone point me to the light? :)
Thank you so much!
