Thank you so much for all the helpful links on how to hem sheer fabrics. I will compile a list later on as I’m sure it can be beneficial for others.
I’m just experimenting right now, I have yet to finish any seams. But these are my conclusions so far:
- Machine stitches makes the chiffon very stiff, so the fabric doesn’t drape very well.
- Hand rolling a hem is a very beautiful method, but it is way too hard to do in a good looking manner on chiffon when you’ve never done it before. Therefore I’m giving up on this method.
- French bias binding could be the way to go. I’ve done it on the neckline (see the last photo) and if I can attach the band by hand I think this will give a very nice looking finish. Regular machine top stitching makes it way too stiff unfortunately.
