A narrow hem is one that is approximately 1/8" or 1/4" and is used on men's shirts, slips, lingerie, napkins, and other items that need just a hint of a hem.
Commonly a special sewing machine foot is used to achieve the narrow hem. But the hem can be done a couple of ways without an additional foot.
This is my tip/trick to achieve the narrowest of narrow hems.
Note: This method utilizes a serger/overlock
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
