How To Hand Hem

This week Chris & Ellie show us how to shorten and finish the hem on a pair of trousers by hand.

They use two different stitches with a contrasting coloured thread, so you can see how neat the inside of the trousers look once finished. This technique is also great to use on skirts and dresses too.

By taking a few moments to mend one of your garments and giving it a second life, you can not only preserve your favourite items but also help keep textiles out of landfill.

For more information on hand hemming, you can also read our blog on how to hem jeans by hand and just follow the steps.
As usual we will be on hand throughout the tutorial and afterwards to answer any questions. Please post them in the comments below and we'll get back to you. 
Now sit back, learn, relax and enjoy :)
