This hem gives the look of a cuff, but it is actually a tunred up hem, sticthed on the inside.

Step 1: Turn up hem, then fold hem back toward the garment's right side into position for bilnd hemming

Step 2: Stitch just a bit to the left of the top fold, using either a narrow zig zag or overlock stitch.

Step 3: Open the hem out. Do not press flat. The little roll between the garment and hem makes it look like an attached cuff.

I'm having a hard time believing this is going to look good, especially without pressing...what kind of fabric did you use this technique on?
