Hemming Techniques - Tiny Hems and Hem Alternatives

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Hemming Techniques Part 4: Sewing tiny hems and choosing to use hem alternatives.

Are you ready to learn some new techniques? Let's go...

In the video posted below, I share with you my go-to methods for working with these tiny little circles as well as share a few tips for working with narrow hems on necklines and pressing to make things even easier!

I've also included the full Ginza Girl sew along video because this pattern uses a technique that I absolutely love! It removes the need to hem the sleeves and the hemline - it's all in the method and construction! You can see this demonstrated at 19:00 into the video. This technique can likely be used in a variety of pattern designs as well.
