Sewing A Blind Hem Stitch

I’m finally learning how to sew a blind hem, thanks to a sewing machine that is capable of doing them. A blind hem is called that because its stitches are barely visible from the surface of the garment, making the hem “invisible” or “blind.”

Here’s the skirt I wanted to blind hem:

Here’s the skirt (inside out), which had no hem. The skirt previously had a lining. When the lining was removed, the hem dropped because it was been held in place by the lining.
Without the lining, the fabric edge looked frayed …
… So I used a binding stitch to make it neater.

Then it was time to do the blind hem. Of the videos on YouTube that show how to do blind hems, this is the one I like the best so far. It’s short and easy to follow.

Here’s the skirt:

Here it is! The hem is almost invisible. And it might have been *actually* invisible if I’d used thread that was the exact shade of the fabric.
