A – Align the right sides of the main fabric and the lining/facing and sew the bottom part.
Make sure that the edge of the lining’s side seam aligns with that of the main fabric.
When you do this, you’ll notice an excess of main fabric forming a triangular shape.
Trim this excess fabric on both sides for a neater finish.Leave a large opening to facilitate turning the garment right side out.

B – From the right side of the coat, fold the hem up to the desired length, making sure it is even all the way around the coat.
Pin the hem in place along the fold line.Turn the coat inside out so that the wrong side of the coat is facing you.
Starting at one end of the hem, insert the needle into the folded hem and then bring it back up through the main fabric, taking a small stitch that catches a few threads of the fold and the main fabric.
Move along the hemline, making sure that your stitches are evenly spaced and do not show on the outside of the coat.
When you reach the end of the hem, knot the thread securely and cut off any excess.

C – Turn the garment right side out, turn in the edges along the seamline and close the opening with a blind stitch by hand.
