In long full evening dress, sometimes you want fullness in the hem, and can be achieved with layers of petticoats or with a horsehair braid sewn into the hem. Without horsehair or petticoats, the skirt would collapse in towards the feet. Here, we show you two methods of inserting horsehair braid. The first method is easier for beginners and requires encasing the braid in a separate fabric casing, then sewing it to the skirt hem, and is a little different than the method shown in the instructions for Nora’s gown. The second method folds the braid directly to the skirt, with no extra strip.
