Hey, I’m currently sewing my little sister’s Prom dress, based off this dress. She wants it pretty true to the original, and I’m not totally sure how to get the hem to curl the way the model dress does.
I’ve come up with 2 solutions, but they could both be totally wrong (I hope not): 1. Just do a rolled hem, tulle is stiff enough to curl on its own, or 2. You have to put a thin wire in, either by encasing it in a narrow hem or by rolling the tulle around and gluing it.
Has anybody done this before and could share some expertise? My sister and I really appreciate the help :)
