On the hems of my dress pants I find a zigzag stitch which is probably their to keep the garment from unraveling. I was able to achieve this zigzag stitch. But the stitch that holds the hem up is only visible from the inside of the pants and not the outside. I wasn’t able to create a hem that did not show on the outside of the pant. Mine has the black thread stitch marks across the bottom. This is fine on the pants that I experimented with, they were from Chadwicks so it was o.k. to experiment with.
I don’t want the stitch to show through on my more expensive suits since they did not originally come with a stitch across the bottom. I may just do the zigzag stitch to bind the bottom but them hand sew the hem.

I know I have some learning to do. I have only had my machine for 10 days, but I am anxious to learn all that I can. What am I missing?
