Hem rolling despite two rows of stitching

    I’m fairly new to sewing with knits and my machine doesn’t love them. I just finished a little School Bus T for my almost 2 year old today. I hemmed the bottom and sewed two lines of stiching, hoping to avoid a hem that flips up but to no avail.

    Any tips on what to do to fix it?

    The tee went together very well, although while I was working on it, I wasn’t sure it was going to work out. But it looks great and fits my little guy just right.

    Often this will happen if the hem is too narrow

    Do you have enough length to do a deeper hem?

    ETA Some fabric is prone to roll. There is a neat trick where you tuck the fabric and then overlock, leaving no visible stitching. I have hunted for a tute but will keep looking.

    SOS KatyBellaBug, I think you know the one….

    The sleeve hema are fine. I will try deeper hem on my next one. I do have a tendency toward slim hems-probably comes from being used to 1/4″ seams for quilting.

    Had to take my Pfaff in for service today so no sewing ’til Tuesday:-(
