Hi, I am new here. I like to sew for my family and friends. I sometimes take on tasks which I need help with. My daughter is a bridesmaid for her best friend in June02.2007 and she and another girl need their dresses hemmed. I am not sure how do hem these dresses. The material is 100% polyster and the style is umpire waist. the dress has a a-line with a train. I don't know how to hem these. Can anyone help me with this problem. I love to sew and I just can't give up on this!
Thank You

I pm you a message which means private message,

about the bridemaids dresses etc.

as I said I have done a lot of hemming of wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses, I need a little bit more information, how much do you need to take it up on each girl's dress, and is there any lace around the bottom of the dress, and more then likely the train won't have to be touched, because I only ever took the hem up in the front and a little on the sides not much,

so if you have pictures I would like to see them and then I can tell better what you need to do.
