We received a very urgent craft question from a reader and are hoping our knowledgeable community can help. In fact, we are so excited to help this woman hem her daughter’s wedding dress that we are offering a Dimensions Punch Needle Craft Kit for the best answer. Just post your answer in the comments and we will pick a winner next Friday, September 11.
Here is what she asks:
My daughter is getting married on Oct 3… just weeks away and her dressed needs to be hemmed. I have a lot of sewing experience. How far off the floor should the hem be? Would it be best to hand sew, machine sew or use fusible hem tape? please, I need help very soon. Thank you so much.
Update on the fabric: She says “Several people asked what kind of material the gown is… it’s satin…plain with no lace or trim whatsoever, but it does have a long sash that is wine color, which goes down to the floor and a little beyond… kind of like a narrow train..”
