59 The Hem

The hem is started at this stage, but isn’t completed until after the lining is put in. Unusually for a Burda jacket this hem is not interfaced because of its soft curve.

Open out the facing then turn the hem up along the marked line. The width of the hem doesn’t matter; it’s getting the lower edge correct that does…

Baste about ¼” from this edge.

My fabric frays a lot but I’m not going to finish the raw edge, it will be covered by the lining.
