Prepare the hem by folding it and pressing it in the
usual way. You may want to baste the hem to hold it
in place, as shown. It so, be sure to place the basting
at least 1/2 inch (12mm) below the top edge of the
hem allowance.

With the wrong side of fabric uppermost, turn the hem
under, as shown, creating a soft told from the top
edge of hem. Pin or baste all three layers together in

Position the hem under the presser foot with the soft
fold resting against wall of the guide, as shown.

* Lower the presser foot and begin sewing making
certain the straight stitches fail on the edge of the hem
and the zig-zag stitches just pierce the soft told of the
work. Adjust stitch width it necessary. While stitching,
guide the hem edge in a straight line and feed the soft
told evenly against the wall of the guide.

* If layers of fabric are pinned together, remove pins
as you come to them. Do not sew over pins.
