Hem facings

If you want to make a hem facing on your coat or jacket see the guides here. I use the CF (c) piece as front facing on version 2 and 3. Therefore, you need to make hem facing on pattern piece A-B-D.

  • Draw the width of the facing on to the bottom on the pattern pieces. The red line. I make the hem facing 5 cm wide. Then I also have for seam allowance

  • Trace the hem facings on to a new pieces of paper.

  • Cut away the seam allowance where it is shown on the illustration.

  • The two pattern pieces where the seam allowance has been cut away, you need to tape together

  • Now you have two hem facing pattern pieces. One that fits the side-front and one that fits the full back piece
