How to Use Hemline Horsehair Braid: Before applying the horsehair braid, carefully steam press it to remove any creases (use a low heat - do not use a hot iron). Mark hemline, trim allowance to 6mm (¼"). Using a long machine stitch, ease stitch one edge of braid. On right side of garment, align unstitched edge of braid with hemline, fold ends of braid under at seam. Stitch close to edge of braid. Turn braid up along hemline and baste close to fold. Pull ease thread to draw up fullness; press and pin. Slipstitch free edge of braid to garment; whipstitch abutted braid ends together. Press hem carefully
