What are you most proud of? The hem really looks nice using the coverstitch machine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Angela's class was very helpful. You don't need a coverstitch machine to do the hems but I recently acquired one. You can use a twin needle to mimic the look.

Awesome work. How did you achieve this technique?

I used a coverstitch hem machine, Janome 1000CP. It makes this triple stitch rows on the top and chain stitch on the bottom like ready to wear clothes. You can use twin needles in your sewing machine to make the double stitch look too.

Your work with the 1000CP looks awesome. What great hems that machine can do. I need to try out the 3-thread cover stitch on the next thing I make. You've inspired me!

Thanks! I bought a second identical pair of yoga pants just so I could hem it using my coverstitch machine! A friend just asked me to hem her t-shirt. Of course I said yes so I could use this machine again.

I recently hemmed my yoga pant too and rather than use a twin needle, I top stitched twice. Looks great!
