Hem the thin lightweight chiffon and similar fabrics is very hard in any cases. But using the rolled hem presser foot is the simple way how to hem thin fabrics.

In the middle of foot is the snail for double folding the fabric edge.
Use this presser foot for hem chiffon and other thin fabrics only.
The most difficult thing is to do first stitches. In order to make the start hemming more easier you need trim the corner of fabric, as shown.
Lift the lever presser foot up and insert the trimmed portion into the spiral.
Next, lower the presser foot and start sewing.
To help hold and move the fabric takes both threads and pulls them during sewing.
The needle pierces should pass very close to the edge of folded fabric. Do not rush, and periodically check your work.
The beginning hem using the rolled hem presser foot is very hard. I recommend trying on an experimental piece of fabric first.
Now hem will be easier to make. Try to gently stretch both edges of fabric during the hemming.
