You will end up with only one line of stitching on the outside of the hem. Sewing the first line of stitching with a bigger hem and then trimming it down, creates a guide and makes it easier to fold and hem a second time.

    Brill!! I’ve used a similar technique before, but it was nowhere near this easy. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    Thanks! Seems so easy. I’m sewing chiffon later and it looks a bit daunting! This really helped.
