Bra Friendly Olive Sewalong - Part 8 - Finishing Touches

Oh my goodness, can you believe it? You are nearly finished with your project! All that’s left is to hem your garment.

From the wrong side, press the bottom edge of your leg opening up 1/2” (1,3 cm) then another 1/2” (1,3 cm).

Sew along the upper pressed edge.

Optional: If you’d like to add a cuff to your garment, from the right side, press your leg opening up 2” (5 cm) and then again another 2” (5 cm). Tack your cuff into place at the inseam, side seams, and CF/ CB points. 

Note that if you are working on the tapered leg version, the cuff will be slightly smaller than the leg opening, so it won't lie flush against the portion in which it is tacked. 

Et Voila! You have officially completed your Olive! I think it is time to show the world how awesome your new creation is!
