How to Hem a Wedding Dress With a Train?

Step 1

Take Your Dress and Lay the  Hem on Your Working Table

It is crucial to acquire an accurate measurement of the growth. So, try the grown-on and figure out how much hem you need. Once you do that, mark the places.

Step 2

Take your dress and lay the hem on your working table. Now, use a seam gauge to cut it into an accurate measurement. You’re gonna need some pins to hold the fabric in one place. In this case, if you find that you have less than 2 inches, consider half of your job is done. But if you have more than 2 inches, you’ll need to hem all the way around. In my case, I had to remove 4 inches from the bottom.

Step 3

After correctly measuring and marking the spots, take your rotary blade and cut along the drawn line. Don’t rush; take your time.
