does anyone have any idea how hard it would be to add a bubble hem to this dress? as it is, it says it will be a perfect fit for someone 5’8″ to 5’9″, and i’m only 5’4″, so i’d have over 5 inches to play with. also, the dress is lined, if that makes a difference.
i’d really appreciate any imput, since my wedding is only 2 months away!

I think that you would need to find a seamstress and show them a picture of the exact hem that you want. You only have 4 to 5 inches of play and depending on the height of your shoes, it may not be possible, unless you want it much shorter or add extra fabric.

Thats a pretty dress, I love how simple and classic it is.
I don’t know anything about sewing, but I wonder if a bubble hem might be difficult to put in on fabric that slinky?

i am not a seamstress but i like to play around with my clothes, ie. sew it here and there and every where 😛 i dont’ think it’s that hard to do the bubble hem, the seamstress can just fold the bottom inwards and sew it together with the lining then you should have a bubble hem.

I agree with TingTing. I’m not sure about the length, but as far as the bubble hem goes…it shouldn’t be a problem. Love the dress, by the way.

Most bubble hems are made with the fabric folded over the entire way. So the piece of fabric would start at the waist and would fold under to meet back up at the waist again. I’m sure it could be done with your dress by attaching it to the lining, but it might not have the same effect. Just consult a seamstress.
