So I just got my dress bAck from the seamstress today and originally she told me that I did not need it hemmed and i said okay you know best. But today I put it on at my mom’s (had to be let out a bit in the hips) it fits great, I can walk, sit and move comfortably. But the first pic she says it’s great no hem needed and I have my shoes on in both, opinions? The only reason i even noticed the length is because I tripped on it. Am I being too picky or should I just get it over with and find a different t person to do it? Because she didn’t seem InterEsted the hem, which is another reason I’m seeking opinions.
Hanging as is (too tight in legs)
Back from seamstress, almost perfect fit (Holding up where it would be for me not to trip on it)

If you need to hold it up to prevent you from tripping you probably need it hemmed….<br />That being said my grad dress was the perfect lenght but I still managed to step on the front, pull down the top and make a big rip in it….

The length looks perfect to me, but if you’re tripping on it maybe you could get a small hoop for underneath to keep it off your feet?

May be cheaper to just get a higher shoe.

The front I think is perfect length. I kinda had the same issue and my seamstress is taking up the petticoat underneath closest to my feet, just a tad so it doesn’t change the length in front.

I’m confused. Do you want the bottom of the skirt hemmed or the skirt lifted? Those are two totally different alterations.

Are you wearing a slip underneath? A slip can really poof the bottom out a little more so no hem will be needed and you won’t trip.
But if you are already wearing one and still tripping, you can either extra layers to the slip, or have it altered slightly. You don’t want to trip in it, you have to wear it all night!

You could also have some tulle added into the bottom – that would poof it out more if it’s bothering you. That’s also a pretty cheap alteration.

I took it to a seamstress who knew what she was talking about and she agreed with me and said it was too long for my body so she picked the skirt up
here it is now I pick it up Wednesday for my wedding next Saturday 🙂

it wasn’t all the way buttoned here but I adore the bustle and how frilly/poofy it all is
