I'm working with interlining for the first time. Do I hem the interlining? And if so, how much hem is standard? Any additional tips or tricks of the trade would be most welcome. Thanks for your answers in advance.

We use a 1" double hem in the interlining. Others have just overlocked the bottom, but to me it looks unfinished.
When attaching to the side hems, you may want to cut the interlining before folding the lining and face fabric to reduce the bulk.
