We’re just about done with our Asters now! All that’s left is to hem and add closures.
Fold the hem of the shirt under 1/4″ towards the wrong side of the garment. Press.
Fold the hem of the shirt under 3/8″ towards the wrong side of the garment. Press.
Edgestitch along the fold of the hem.
On the right side of the shirt front, create buttonholes at the marks along the placket.
On the left side of the shirt front, attach buttons beneath the buttonholes.
And that is that! Our sewing is done! Stay tuned to learn more about how to share your Aster.
I have really been struggling with the bottom hem. It keeps curling up. I’ve made several Asters now and most of them have curling hem. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Is it curling inward or outward? You may need to adjust your thread tension, as the wrong tension can cause hems to curl.
I was wondering about tension. It it curling outward.
I was taught that in order to prevent curling on shirt hems, they must be sewn from right side..I use washable fabric glue or basting glue rather than pins to keep hem in place while I sew….not Elmers glue.
Just used the glue baste tip for the hem, stitching from the right side. Perfect, and no curling!
