I made this dress with the hope of wearing it to my high school homecoming, but it turned out to be too small even though it was the same size that I had made the cotton version in: Retro Reminiscent Good-bye Party Dress Because I wanted to have it as a more formal dress, without doing the long dress, I tried to make it out of satin and a sheer overlay. I thought that if I made it as if it were one material it would all work out and this worked until I got to the hem. I had already sewn the seams as if it was one material, so I could not hem the two of them seperately, but sewing them together gives more of a bubble look. What do you guys think? how do you hem a dress that was made out of two different materials? Other than that the dress turned out very pretty and I am yet again happy with the pattern
