I’ve consistently used the blind hem for hemming clothing that I otherwise sew on machine. It produces a LOVELY rolled hemline. It’s probably my favorite hand-stitching hem ever. I like and prefer it over machine hemming (Unless I do a folded hem), because it hides the rough edge and looks really smooth.
For seams, I like a whip stitch, because it’s really fast, and again, when you make tiny stitches, it holds extremely well and looks very lovely.
