Pucker-free Hems in Knits – Linda Lee

1. Using a tagboard template cut to the finished width of the hem, press the hem in place.

2. Use one of the following options to adhere the hem in place before sewing:
Option 1 – Press a strip of fusible web tape on the wrong side of the hem. Remove the paper covering to expose the line of glue, and press the hem in place.

Option 2 – Sew a ½”-wide strip of fusible tricot hem tape to the wrong side of the hem with the fusible side facing up. Fold the hem in place and fuse the hem in place.

Option 3 – Open the pressed hem. Spray temporary spray adhesive on the wrong side of the hem allowance. Fold the hem in place and press to fuse.

3. Use a walking foot and a straight stitch to topstitch the hem in place.
