narrow rolled hem on chiffon
I have some beautiful silks that I want to start sewing so I (fortunately) decided to start with a simple wrap skirt just to practice before I got to projects that required more fitting. I plan to make a couple of blouses and I have a dress that I am hoping to have done by spring. I’ve solved all the problems up to this one through research and ingenuity but this has me flustered …. What do you use to stabilize silk chiffon so it can be successfully hemmed? I want to use a narrow 3 thread rolled edge but I can’t keep the fabric under the needle and I’m ending up with cords not a hemmed skirt. It is a circular skirt so much of it is on the bias as well as slippery and I really don’t want to do the hem by hand, it simply isn’t worth it for a 14 year old that will wear it out in a year…and love every minute of it.
