Help on 30 minute jacket, May issue

dovid619 | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Good morning from York, PA.  I have somebody interested in buying one of those great jackets from the May issue.  I need help with the hems…..they all come out differently.  The thinner the fabric, the harder to measure evenly.    Any suggestions?  My husband and Mother are tired of modeling for me…

    I had the same problem with hems of filmy fabrics on dresses.  Finally solved it by buying one of those wooden hem markers that stand on the floor, have a slide/clip contraption that sort of holds the fabric in place while you mark with a pin.  Worth the investment.
