Update: Finished the dress with a week to go until the wedding! Per all your suggestions, I shortened the hem line and it looks great! I apologize for the fuzzy photo. My fiancee is not a great photographer!
My friend is getting married in 3 weeks, and its a formal affair. I don’t have anything to wear and fell in love with this fabric, so I made this dress. I haven’t finished the hem because I haven’t decided whether or not I want to keep it long, or shorten the dress. Any thoughts?
