The top is nearly finished, there is only the hem to do! You have different possibilities for hemming your Vienna.
Fold the hem allowance to the inside and pin.
You can use a cover stitch machine. Then you get a hem that looks like in RTW.
If you do not have a cover machine, you can get a similar look with a twin needle. You have the double stitches on the outside and a zigzag stitch on the inside. Take care that the thread tension is not too high and increase your stitch length. It should also help to set up one spool so that it rotates clockwise, and the other spool in the opposite direction. And thread both threads at the same time, although I haven’t tried these tips by myself yet.
You can also simply use a zigzag stitch. I decided to use one of the many embroidery stitches that my machine offers and which I use not often enough.
Hemming woven fabrics
Doublefold the hem allowance to the inside and stitch along the upper edge. To make the folding easier you can staystitch first at a distance half the hem allowance from the hemline.
For a beautiful small hem I used a method the Carolyn shared some time ago:
Staystitch at a distance of 1 cm from the hemline.
Fold along this stitch line to the inside and press. Stitch a second time at a 3mm distance. Trim the edge.
Fold again to the inside and stitch. The result is a nice small hem.
