Look Mom No Hems!
You know all those settings on your sewing machine that you just ignore because you don't know what they heck they're there for? Well, I thought I'd throw my two cents in and perhaps make periodic technique posts to show you something that you never thought you could do.
When I first started sewing I would look at the bottom of dresses in the stores and wonder what the heck did they do to make that hem? There's like....no stitch! So I did a little online research and found that there's this little thing called a 'blind hem'. And your sewing machine does it for you.
This little trick is great for us short gals who can't find a great fitting pair of pants to save her life. If it's a good price, chances are it's too long. I can't tell you how many Forever 21 pants I've hemmed this way.
If any of you would like to finish your hems with a little more style, try this tutorial below with a piece of scrap material.
