Mitered Corners

Mitered corners make a clean and professional finish to any garment with exposed hems. You'll find mitered corners in our #1011 Samurai & #1018 Taipei patterns.

Make a template for your mitered corners out of a piece of cardboard or poster board and store with your pattern.



Fold lower edge and opposing edge right sides together, at corner.

It's as if you were folding a square paper napkin corner to corner, forming a triangle shape.

Using the template, draw a stitching line at a 45 angle to the 1-½” hemline, by laying the template on the pointed end of the folded corner.

Stitch on your marked line.

DO NOT TRIM MITER.

To turn to right side, open out miter until it forms a "square" shape, turn right side out easing out miter with a point turner. Press.
