|I hate to hem! I may have a garment finished, but hate hemming so much it sits undone for awhile.
I learned this tip from Wendy Mullins book on sewing with knits. I've used it several times, and has worked very well for me!
Wendy hems the front and back pieces of a dress or top BEFORE sewing the side seams! It's very easy to do, as the pieces are laying flat. It doesn't 'feel' like hemming! I have also noticed that it seems to make the garment lay better~ the hem is caught in the side seam making it easier to press, instead of one continuous hem, which, in my opinion is hard to get even all the way around.
I hope this helps some one! It's really worked well for me!
