Tonight I discovered my machine's Narrow Hemmer Foot. I have a Brother sewing machine. I purchased it for only $80 bucks on Amazon and it came with a bunch of accessories that are pretty cool. Among them was the Narrow Hemmer Foot. I discovered this little gem after I saw a tut and decided to try the tut.
The tut was for a cute summer top that has a faux ruffle across the top. It requires a narrow hem (hence why I used the foot). If you're interested in seeing the tutorial, go to mimigstyle.com. Anyways, her top is way cute - mine ...well, I tried! lol.
But I got to use the Narrow Hemmer Foot and I'm really impressed. I used a lightweight cotton and a small hem is great for it. No pressing - just followed my machine's manual and sewed a small hem with it.
Here's a pic of it:
Here's the top I made from Mimi's tut:
Since I'm a bit busty I don't think this type of top looks good on me. It's a good thing it wasn't any longer because it would not have fit over my hips.
Anyway, just wanted to mention the foot and my new top. Not sure if anyone's reading this but :)
