>Taking up the hem: silver brocade dress.

>I got this dress on clearance for about $40, but it had a ghastly 4″ black satin hem! Not okay, but not a problem.

No cutting was necessary for this project–I just tucked the entire hem under and used a simple catch stitch to bring it up.

Really beautiful, textured, Prada-esque fabric.

I still have to iron down, and possibly topstitch the new hem. Obviously, I need to take the slip up, too! Once that’s all done this dress will be a knockout. It fits so well, and looks much better as a mini–very exciting.
