    Hi, Saw on your project post you wanted to do a double needle stitched hem, try this:

    Press the hem, let it set for a while so no moisture is in the hem. Use a double needle for knits (ball point or stretch) if availble for your machine, put Wooly Nylon in the bobbin, loosen the tension.

    Test on scrap to get the right tension and stitch length.

    I had read where some use the very light fusible tape, I tried this it “was not a great look” it made hem kind of wavy and stiff.

    If you have an Overlocker with Cover stitch, I love using that method on knit hems.

      This was very nice of you to take the time out to explain this technique to me.

      Thank you!
