I recently completed this dress, but was confused by the directions for the hem, which just say, “hem is left raw.” I’ve never come across that instruction before and am mystified on what would prevent the hem from fraying (which indeed it already has started to do). I would really appreciate advice from anyone who has made this or a similar draping dress before as to how I should handle the hem. Btw, in case it matters, I used a pebbled poly satin for the dress. Thanks!
Thank you Lincatz this is valuable advice.
