I’ve just finished my first turned hem, with the pattern Lelah. Not really the most fun experience, but I’m really happy with the result. I used a whip stitch to seam the live stitches with a row of purl bumps. Because it’s sewn through the back of the stitches, the hem is nearly invisible on the right side (looks pretty nifty on the wrong side too). The seam is also very stretchy, which is a very good thing since it turned out a little small! 😦

The top is finished now, so I’ll have more details and photos for you within a couple days.
