The Blue Hemp Dress: a follow up on not finishing the seams.

Yes, it works like a charm!  The fraying that you see here will not increase.  Hemp linin is self finishing!  5 washes and the edges bind together like soft Velcro.

To boot, the first three washes, iron while still fresh from the washing machine and the seams learns to stay open!  I only need to iron if I need it to look crisp from here on.  The shots of the seams above are fresh from the dryer with no ironing. The caveat is to pull the dress (hemp linen garment) from the dryer (not an overly full one to crush the garment)  as soon as it stops and hang it up.  Put on a hanger and Done.

 

Here are some shots of the zipper after

    • It was something that I noticed in my other hemp cloths but the serging of the seams made the seams rougher then if left alone. So I left this one alone to see if it worked. And I like the results! Thanks for looking Ada and hug of course!
