As I was taking up the hem on a pair of jeans I thought you might like to know a tip I was given many years ago. Trim the inside tip of the seam seen in the photo
Next using a small hammer hit the thick part of the seam,
this makes it easier to sew over the seam
No trouble now for the "foot" of your machine !
This is the hammer I use ,so light and handy.Hope this has helped you
