Cali sewalong: finishing your dress
All that’s left to do on your dress is the hem! I’m a little old-school, as I find the best finish is most often achieved by hand. Here’s how.
FINISHING YOUR HEM
Fold the lower edge of your hem up by 1cm. Press in place with a warm iron.
Fold your hem in once again so that the raw edge is enclosed. Press in place.
Using slipstitch (just as we did to finish the armhole), secure the folded hem to the main skirt fabric with tiny, alternating stitches.
