What's the best way to stitch a narrow bias hem of the curved hem of a princess shirt? Or a round or oval tablecloth for that matter? A small zigzag? I want to avoid puckers. I have already serged the edges for a clean finish. The fabric is fairly stiff, and there is a button placket, so a rolled hem is not possible.

Nancy Zieman addresses this on her show once, but I forgot.

Thank you.

For shirts with this kind of hemline. my favorite is the "baby hem" (a plus is that it adds almost no bulk on tuck-in shirts). Here is Gigi Louis' excellent article.
