1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / hand sewing a hem for a grade = CATASTROPHIC! on: December 22, 2006 12:27:54 PM
so.  here's the situation.

i'm taking clothing construction for my elective in school, and i'm making a black pencil skirt.  i'm SO close to being done - today i sewed on the hem tape and folded it under and pinned it, so all that's left to do is to handsew it there.  my teacher showed me a few of the stitches and then let me take it home to wear for christmas... but the problem is that i can't figure out the stitch now!!

it had something to do with locking the thread, and she said you use your thumb to pull the thread over at like a 90 degree angle (or something...) sorry i'm not descriptive!  i neeeed to get this thing done and i'm soo stuck... pleeease help!!!  if anyone can even describe using pictures that would be AMAZING !!!  once i finish i'm going to post pics under "completed projects" so keep an eye out if you can help me!! thanks sooo much!!!
