How to Make a Dress

Jersey dress, flared dress and lined dress

If you want to sew a hem on a jersey dress, or a flared dress, or on a dress or skirt with a lining, making the hem is not very different from the previous methods. However, some modifications are necessary for a perfect hem.

Sew a hem on a jersey dress

For sewing hems on dresses or jersey skirts, or any other elastic fabric:

  • Follow the fitting and preparation steps indicated above depending on the type of dress or skirt (straight or rounded).
  • Sew the hem with a special double needle stretch.
  • Sew on the right side of the fabric, in order to have the two stitches at the right stitch of the double needle on the place of the fabric, and the zigzag created by the double needle on the wrong side of the fabric.
  • You can also sew the hem to the sewing machine with an elastic stitch or a light zigzag stitch.

Sew hem over flared skirts

If you want to sew a hem at the sewing machine or by hand on a flared skirt with straight edges, the edge of the fabric to be folded will be slightly wider than where the fold of the hem is. In that case :

  • Follow the fitting and preparation steps as described above, depending on the type of hem you want to make (sewing machine or hand).
  • Once you have cut the bottom of the fabric, pass a gathering thread a few millimeters from the edge of the fabric:
    • Sew to the sewing machine with a straight stitch as wide as possible, without making stops and leaving several centimeters of thread to protrude at each end of the seam.
    • You can also pass a gathering thread by hand, sewing with a long front stitch, a few millimeters from the edge of the fabric, without making knots or stops, and leaving several centimeters of thread at each End of the seam.
  • Pull on the ends of the yarns to slightly gather the edge of the fabric until it is the same size as the fold of the hem.
  • Continue sewing the hem as shown in the step corresponding to the type of hem you want to sew.
  • Remove the gathering yarns when the hem is finished.

If you sew a hem with extra ribbon on a flared skirt, the width of the hem being reduced, you will only have a few millimeters more fabric in width, so there is no need to frown Edge of the fabric: this gap will spread naturally when sewing, provided that the hem is well pinned before sewing.

Sew a hem on a dress or lined skirt

If the dress or skirt on which you create the hem has a lining, here is how to proceed, regardless of the type of dress or hem. Visit Wholesaleably.com for a cheap maxi dress.

  • Measure the distance X between the bottom of the lining and the bottom of the original hem of the dress.
  • Fold the liner as high as possible and pinch it.
  • Sew the hem of your dress as described in the previous methods, depending on the type of hem you want to achieve.
  • The hem of the dress or skirt finished, unfold the lining and unfold it.
  • Make a hem on the lining in the same way as the hem of your dress, the bottom of the hem of the lining being X cm from the bottom of the hem of the dress (X being the distance between the bottom of The original lining and hem you measured earlier).
  • You can also simply overlap the bottom of the liner to the overlocker or sewing machine, with an overlock stitch.
