This finish uses the same technique as the Hong Kong binding seam finish, but applied to a hem and utilizing a blind handstitch. Enclosing the raw edge inside a strip of bias, this technique is labor intensive and luxurious, and is used in better-quality garments. This method is especially suitable for heavy fabrics and for summer garments that you wouldn’t want to line.
A nice, unlined garment that you would like to have beautifully finished blind hem, a matching (or contrasting) fabric of a lighter weight to cut the bias from OR store-bought bias tape.
