Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does as promised This is a good tape and does the job. Used for a heavy material and hem staying stuck. 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful for those who sew How I wish this product had been available when I was a young girl doing my own dressmaking! I never could get invisible hemline stitches! Don't do any of that now,but I still enjoy making my own curtains and from time to time have to shorten garments and this product is invaluable - simple to use,extremely effective and,importantly,withstands frequent washing.Glad JL has introduced a basics range as perfectly adequate for my needs at great price. 19 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just brilliant Can't see to hem, can't be fashed to get out thread, needle and scissors, so this wonderful product fits the bill perfectly. Easy to apply, a quick press with a damp towel and iron, hey presto all is sorted. Recommended. 06 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Iron-on tape A quick and easy way to repair a dropped hem or trouser hem, especially on holiday. 25 June 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing product I am really disappointed with this product. I've used another brand in the past with success and thought this would be the same. I followed the instructions correctly and used it in my son's school trousers and a pair of my work trousers. My son's hem didn't even stay up for one day, mine lasted a few days more. I won't buy this again. 03 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy hemming tape Great value and a kitchen drawer 'must-have'. So easy for those hem alterations or just hems that have come unstitched. 04 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good value used this to shorten some heavy linen curtains in the bedroom. you have to iron a damp cloth on top of the fabric you're sticking, which is a bit more of a hassle than the stuff Ikea originally provided with the curtains, but it probably makes it stick better. Works great, does what it needs to. 28 August 2012
