    I have been making some flannel fleece-lined jackets lately for husbeast, adult sons and grandsons. The hem curls up in the back. Why is that and what can I do to keep that from happening. My fabrics are all pre-washed, the flannel is ironed. The fleece lining is trimmed so I can fold up the flannel, usually 1/4″ and then another 1/4″ and I sew from the inner hem side, using lots of clips to make sure I catch the fleece completely.

    Oh no! I would guess it’s the double hem which is making the fabric below it less stable. Because it’s fleece and doesn’t really need to be finished with a double hem, if I were you, I’d try to fold it up only one time and sew it in place. See if that stops it from happening.
