Putting a hem on a curved piece of fabric is tricky. When you turn the edges under, you’ll have an inbalance between the amount of fabric to stitich down (the bit you turned under) and what you’re stitching it down to. And the deeper the hem, the larger the difference between the two. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Colette Patterns shows how to hem a curved piece of fabric on your sewing machine. Go there to get the tutorial.
