Hello, Sara here!
Sewing a blind hem is not a difficult skill. Hemming is a skill that every sewist needs to have in their arsenal. But it can be very stressful when you are trying to sew a nice straight edge on an expensive pair of pants. The tutorial is all about the invisible hem, the professional-looking way to hem pants. And trust me, it’s easier and quicker than it looks! Remember, after this tutorial, you will be able to hem everyone’s pants with a professional finish!
For this hem, you will need a blind hem presser foot (includes an adjustable guide for accuracy and makes a blind stitch easy). You will probably be able to find it in your presser foot collection. I am leaving links down below as well, just in case you don’t have it.

I strongly recommend watching the video tutorial. It’s less than 5 minutes long and you can definitely see detailed steps to sew a blind hem!
- Prep the raw edge of your fabric by serging or double folding
- Fold the top fabric back RST (Right Side Together) until you can see 1/4″ of the finished hem edge
Tip: The key is the metal dial! It moves the white guide from side to side so that you can get your needle piercing just the right spot
- The guide fits against the fabric fold and on top of the finished fabric edge
- Dial and adjust the placement of the needle for the small piercing
- The foot keeps the fold running along the guide to get consistently even and small stitches (We can’t even see the stitches inside because of the serged edge. If you use the thread that matches with your fabric, you will not see the stitches
It’s a skill that you can learn fairly easy yet very useful! Especially if you are into the garment sewing! I have another tutorial that can be a very useful skill for your sewing projects. The tutorial is about how to serge without a serger. I know as a beginner or a person who only sews for a hobby, you might not have a serger. Knowing how to serge without a serger can solve a lot of problems that you might encounter for your future sewing projects as well as the projects you’ve done already! http://sewingtherapy.net/serge-without-a-serger/
