My teenage daughter chose a full-length chiffon gown for her prom. She is only 5'1" tall, so of course we need to hem it. HELP! What is the best way to go about hemming chiffon and other slippery fabrics?
First the bad news: chiffon has got to be the most difficult fabric to work with. But the good news is that once you have accomplished this task, everything else will seem easy by comparison. Back in the middle of the last century, a wide hem was used for sheers but nowadays, a tiny rolled hem is preferred. It's probably easier to construct a rolled hem but it leaves little room for error.
