I don’t sew so my opinion doesn’t count but I think you need to take into consideration what the fabric is. If it’s a silk type material, 1/2 inch – if it’s a cotton blend, one ince is good.

Does that make sense?

I’m not sure about silky taffeta, does it seem like it would run or snag easily? If so, then yes, you may notice some snap if you take out the hem. It will also depend on how it was hemmed. Was the original hem left in place?  If not, then it would be very noticable, I think.
