Basic Tailoring Tips : Tailoring Tips: Sewing New Hems


I have set everything at a half an inch. I
recommend a half an inch. Some people use home sewing 5/8 of an inch. I use a half of
an inch. So I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to sew everything. I put right sides
together at 4/8 of an inch on my sewing machine and I’m going to just start sewing. I sew
over the pins. Maybe you don’t want to sew over the pins. It’s up to you but I just sew
over them. Following 4/8 of an inch on your machine. And you just do the same thing with
the rest of the, with the second sleeve. And with the side seams. Back tack to secure it.
You want to back tack at the end as well. Okay.
