I am working on a jacket from Burda 8620 for my pregnant sister. The pattern is cute and I have had fun with it. The jacket has concave hems, they curve up in the middle and come down on the sides (don’t be impressed with the fancy language–I went scrambling for the dictionary so that I could describe it! 🙂 )
Technique time: Hems that curve down in the middle and up at the sides (convex) are relatively easy. The opposite is not, unless I am missing something really obvious. Clipping the fabric does not give me a nice looking hem if anyone looks at the inside of the jacket, and jackets do tend to flap open. Any suggestions?
