Hemmed Seam: One inch and a quarter from the top crease a fold with the warp. Cut on this crease.
See description of the Hemmed Seam, page 91.
Putting a ruffle into a hem-tuck and tucking: Measure up from the bottom two and one-fourth inches - or twice the width of the hem-tuck plus one-fourth inch for the seam - and crease with the warp, across the piece. Machine stitch, or run by hand an inch tuck, taking care to measure and make perfectly even. Measure up three-eighths of an inch from this stitching and crease for another tuck. Stitch, or run by hand an eighth of an inch tuck. Measure up three-eighths of an inch for another tuck. Put in a cluster of three tucks. Hem the ruffle with an eighth of an inch hem, gather and stroke the gathers.
Place the wrong sides of the cloth and ruffle together and baste to the edge extending below the hem-tuck, bringing the seam exactly to the edge of the tuck. Baste and stitch the edge of the hem-tuck over the seam of the ruffle.
