Sewing a Euro Hem : Pinning 1st Excess Hem Fabric

Sewing a Euro Hem : Pinning 1st Excess Hem Fabric


So, I have these pants pressed now and, like
I said, I need to go ahead and tack up the excess fabric. But, before I do that, I am
going to go ahead and put some pins to anchor right where I want it. I do not want it to
be saggy, so I am just going to pull it tight. I already pressed and that is why I pressed
it, to make sure it lays right where I want it to. There you go. Just going to put just
about as many pins as I did when I pinned up the excess fabric and sewed it initially.
There we go. Ok. And so, what I want to do, I want to use the same color of gray thread
that I used to sew it with. I already had it on my sewing machine. So, I am just going
to get a piece of this. Enough to go around the leg. Ok. And, thread my needle. I am just
going to use one, one layer of thread, not two, because it is just going to hold it up.
And, I am going to show you in the next clip how to do a simple whip stitch all the way
around this. And, it will hold this excess fabric so it does not fall out when they are
walking.
