This is where the magic happens. The next step is to flip the ban roll to the inside, against the wrong side of the fabric, once again just as you would hem tape. The baby hem, therefor, will wrap around the comb part of the ban roll (which is why it is ideal to only remove about 3 threads or so - again, you can do more, as you are in control of where you place your stitch line, but I found it easier to line up my needle with the edge of the woven section so I kept the comb the width of my desired finished hem).
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
