Well, our “Rosaline” is almost ready to wear! All we have left is to finish up our side seams and hem. Start by placing you garment right sides together aligning your side seams and the under part of the sleeve. Place pins down the sleeve and side seam. Continue pinning until you reach the bottom of the side seams. Sew or serge your side seams and sleeve with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Repeat process with the other side. Now onto hemming, For this version I choose to use my coverstitch machine. However, in the instructions there are other ways to hem.
For the coverstitch version or double needle, press the hem up 1″.Use pins to secure and then using the cover stitch machine to sew the hem. You can also use a double needle to create the same look as a coverstitch, or simply sew around the hem twice leaving an 1/8″ space between the stitching lines. Repeat the process on your sleeves and now you are ready to rock your “Rosaline”!
