Shirt hem too long? It can be shortened. Here is an example of how my client pinned her shirt to the desired length and left me a note to be sure.
Unpin and keep the pins in a safe spot.
Measure and pin the same amount all around.
Measure the amount of the hem to duplicate this on the coverstitch machine.
Washi tape is great to mark the guide.
Then place the garment under the pressor foot using the guide.
Sew all around and go over the same spot to reinforce and lock in the stitches.
Use a needle to pull the threads to the other side and tie a knot.
Then carefully cut a slit with embroidery scissors and trim off the excess.
The coverstitch machine makes a really nice and professional hem for stretchy fabrics like this beautiful white top. I'm in love with the sleeves! 😍
