How To Finish Hems Without Serger & Add Casing For Elastic

Creation: How To Finish Hems Without Serger & Add Casing For Elastic
Fabrics Used: Whisper Batiste Voile and Cotton Lace
The Visionary: Denise, Whimsy Couture
Our Thoughts: Denise at Whimsy Couture made a cute cotton blouse for her daughter using our Batiste Voile and Cotton Lace. We love the detailed tutorial!
 I want to show you a great way for finishing hems other than serged/rolled hemming. Some patterns require a hem finish with a serger but what if you don’ t have a serger? You can use this tutorial to finish any ‘to be serged’ hem other than with a serger.

The ‘secret’ is…..binding! I promise you, once you have tried to bind hems you will love it! But promise me, that you will take the time to read this tutorial with PLENTY of time on your hands!

Sommer Romper

Creation: Sommer Romper

Materials Used: Foxgloves Navy Poplin, Stem Dot Pink Poplin, Rain Broadcloth & 5mm natural lace

The Visionary: Terra at Mama Says Sew!

Our Thoughts: We love Terra's choice of prints with the Foxgloves Navy and Stem Dot Pink poplins, complimented by a Rain broadcloth lining. Not to mention the pattern is adorable!


I love trying out fabric from Organic Cotton Plus. The navy fabric I used for this romper is probably my favorite that I've tried from them so far. I love the print, and it's so soft! There is also a similar print that I really wanted to try that looks like it's from the same line. It's called Fox in the Foxgloves.
