I purchased this dress to wear in a wedding:
The dress is about 13 inches too short and I want to add length in a unique way. I have 3 options in fabric and I only have about 3 days to get this completed. The dress is a stretch knit jersey fabric and it hangs very nicely so I don’t want to add too much weight to the bottom which might make it stretch out of shape. I have a black lace (not my favorite because it is too see through), a black lining type fabric that is very lightweight and has a sparkle all through it, and the last piece of fabric (which is my favorite but not sure if it will be too much….aka clash) is a satin that has a black and cream design on it that is designed to look like lace.
I am looking for suggestions on adding length in a unique way, other than just the plain color block hem.
Thanks in advance to all who answer :-)
