A hem is defined as a finishing technique for a garment (pants, skirts, etc). Three basic forms of hems can be used in the process of constructing garments: turned-up edge, faced edge, and enclosed edge. The most common technique used is the turned-up edge hem. After the hem is constructed, the following criteria should be met: 1) the garment should hang on the body in a uniform and even manner; 2)the hem should be free of bulk, and 3)the hem should be concealed from the eye unless used for decorative purposes. The following tutorial outlines the steps associated with constructing a blind machine hem sample that can be used as a guide for integrating this technique into a garment.
