Rita Blouse Sew-Along: The Hem!

Final post, everyone! All that’s left at this point is the hem.

Just like you did for the casings, you’re going to guide stitch around the hem using a 1/4″ seam allowance, stitching through just a single layer. Next, turn up the hem along the guide stitching so that the stitching is just turned to the wrong side of the blouse. Turn the hem up a second time so that it is doubled. Finally, edge stitch in place.

Here’s a little video breaking down those steps and giving you a close up on the zipper treatment.

And here’s a look at the finished hem:

And that’s all, you’re done! Thank you so much for joining in the Rita Blouse Sew-Along. Don’t forget to share pictures of your finished blouses in the Facebook group!

    I think this blouse would be gorgeous lengthened into a dress.
