Hadley Sew-Along: Hem Facing
Lets begin by assembling our hem facing. With right sides facing, align and sew the center back seam. Next align the side seams of the front and back facing and sew those together. Press the seam allowances open. Align the lower edge of the facing with the lower hem edge of your shirt. Right sides should be facing each other and side and back seams should be aligned. At the front you'll be matching notches since the front facing piece is cut on the fold. Stitch around the edge at the 1/2" seam allowance. Grade your seam allowance and press the hem facing and seam allowance down, away from the garment. Understitch around the seam line through the facing and both layers of seam allowance. Turn the garment inside out and press up the 1/2" seam allowance along the raw edge of the facing. Press the facing up to the wrong side of the garment and stitch around the free edge to secure it to the shirt. You've just completed the last step for view B! Give your garment a good press and wear it out proudly! If you have any questions let us know in the comments below, otherwise we'll be back to finish up view A next!
