You will find many occasions to use the blind stitch, a stitch which is used quite extensively in dressmaking. It is used when virtually no stitch is to show on either side of your garment, and is most appropriately used on hems, bias bands and folds.

    This technique/how to is missing all the steps from the “old” Burdastyle website – it should have 6 steps :(

    I can still see all the steps on the old site here: How To – Hand Sewn Blind Stitch

    I’m with camilaustral , I don’t understand how this will prevent the raw edge from fraying too!

    but that leaves raw edges in the inside… it will fray

    can the “folding” be done to the inside on the hem?

    please help!
