Well folks, we made it. We’re on the last, and easiest, step of the Olive construction – the hem. Seriously, its only a couple of simple steps. And its the same for any version you make – I’ll show you on a blouse, but the same goes for the dress hem, as well. And the long sleeve hem, too!
Ready to finish up?
Turn under the bottom edge toward the inside by 3/8″ and press.
Turn in again by another 3/8″, enclosing the raw edge, and press again. Pin in place if needed.
Stitch around the entire hem, close to the folded edge.
See? Done already! How simple was that?!
You did it! Your Olive is done!
