T-Shirt Edging – Scallops

To make a scalloped edge on T-shirt hems and necklines: Set your sewing machine to a wide blind hem stitch. Topstitch the fabric about 3/16 inch (1/2 cm) from the edge, taking care to let the zigs stay in the fabric and the zags off the edge of the fabric. You may have to tighten the upper thread tension to develop the scalloped edge. Sometimes the scallops become more pronounced after laundering.
