How to sew a narrow hem on sheer fabrics

Learn how to sew a narrow hem (easy even on chiffon) using a ban roll tape, how to sew a rolled hem on chiffon without a special rolled hem foot. What exactly is this Ban Roll? It is a kind of waistband interfacing tape which is very stiff (looks like highly starched) that won’t curl or roll and is crush-proof. They say that it’s made of 58% nylon/ 17% rayon/ 15% polyester/ 10% thermoplastic resin but it’s woven quite loosely. It’s mostly used in sewing waistbands to make them rigid and keep their shape. The width of the tape can vary. You can see very clearly threads that form the tape interlacing to one another at right angles. The threads can be easily peeled away to make a frayed edge that will be pulled out after stitching.
