hems means: The hem is at the ends of the cloth where the fabric has been folded in half and then sewn to keep it from falling apart. Hemming involves using small stitches that are almost invisible to hold the fabric in place. The length of the hem can also define the overall silhouette of an outfit from mini-to maxi.
