The Linen Hems Are Rolling

By June 9, 2009

Follow me on:

I had a question in the Laundry Community Form about how to keep a linen skirt hem from rolling up. The writer ironed the skirt faithfully but it still rolled up. I gave her several solutions and the cause. The hem is rolling up because there is not enough weight to keep it stiff. This can be solved by adding iron-on interfacing to the underside of the hem, adding a bias tape on the inside or sewing in a lightweight chain inside the hem. Couture houses frequently use a chain to keep jacket and skirt hems hanging correctly. Join the Forum and we'll find you an answer to your every laundry need. You'll find some really great Web friends there as well!
