Yes - you can use it on gently curved or straight seams. I think they come in different widths - 1/4 inch or 1/8 inch.
I've found the smaller width VERY difficult to get the hang of. I can kind of use it if I zig zag but not so much with a straight stitch. I just can't seem to get in there. On the other hand, I have no trouble anymore just turning a narrow hem (Not 1/8 inch narrow, but quarter inch for sure) and seaming. I don't fold twice and iron, I can just do it on the machine.
A friend of mine did master the rolled hem foot by practicing straight seams and making lots of napkins. Just something to think about.
Third generation WOHM. I work by choice.
