No, you haven’t ruined it! 

I would be careful about doing any more of the work yourself, though. Can you find a good tailor anywhere who could hem it for you? I know we can often do these things ourselves, but sometimes the fabric is just too fine for anyone but professionals.

I actually think it looks fine on the hanger: it looks like the lining and the hem are now at the same level.

If you don’t feel like you can do it yourself, then take it to a seamstress; but honestly no one is going to look too closely at your hemline.

I can’t tell on the hanger.  That being said,  a tailor probably can make the lining a little shorter if you feel more comfortable with it being hemmed up a bit.

My tailor would have only charged about $15-20 to hem it professionally. You can still take it to a pro, and they can take it up another 1/4 or 1/2 inch just to get the hem to be even.
