Practically every garment you are going to sew will need some kind of hemline, and there are so many options and ways to achieve them. Many of these will depend on the type of fabric you are sewing and sometimes the type of garment structure or look you want to achieve. For example a knit fabric would require a different approach than a wool or a chiffon, and suits and coats have a different approach as tailoring requires very different and more expert technical knowledge.
