Springfield Sewalong Day 5: Hemming


Today’s the final day of the Springfield Sewalong! And it’s a simple one: hemming.

  1. Fold up hem by 1/4″ (6mm) to the wrong side, press. Then fold up by another 1/4″ (6mm) and press again.

2. Sew along the edge of the hem, and press.

3. Repeat with the other side of the hem.

And that’s it! Enjoy your Springfield Top and maybe you’ll be inspired to make even more!

    Hi Jenny,

    If you don’t have a split side seam, how should the top be hemmed?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Hannah – you just hem it all in one go – fold up once all around the loop, then the second time, then sew.
