A few things to know:
- Have a measuring tool handy.
- Heat your iron up - you're going to need it.
- You'll need a fabric marker or chalk & a straight edge
- And thread to match your fabric.
The original measurement from hem edge to seam at the hem is 1", so we'll keep our new hem the same size. You want to fold the raw edge over 1" and then, fold it again another 1" so that there is no raw edge showing that will fray over time. This is why you want to measure 2" from crease toward the old hem.
After the cut is made, fold your hem over as described above. Iron it in place so that the edge is crisp and smooth and won't bunch up when you sew it.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll try this and see for yourself how easy this is!
