Ok, how do I finish up hems without a serger.  Do I double fold and then sew?  Any suggestions to make a nice clean hem?

You can do that or else you can fold up the hem then fold 1/4" of the raw hem under and then sew.

Or you can fold up once and press, fold up again and press, and then use Heat N Bond hem or Stitch Witchery to fuse the hem in place and not have to sew at all!  Smiley

You can use hem tape (not my favorite) or Bias tape (much better).  just put the inside bottom edge of the tape against the upper edge of your hem.  Sew in place.  Turn up and sew by hand with a slip stitch.  The tape will take the shape of your hem because it is bias which is a plus.
