Hi! I finally found my dress and I thought this was the hardest process, but now I’m confused and not sure what to do with this hallow to hem situation. I assumed that this is what I wanted, and had no problems ordering my dress this way, but I was told that pronovias does not do hollow to hem measurments, but then I was told by other places that pronovias does offer this type of measurement? Did anyone order their formentera dress hollow to hem? Or is it true that pronovias does not offer this? Did you purchase your dress with regular dress measurements? If so how did this come out? I was concerned about doing regular measurements because there is no seam to re-attach the dress when making alterations…therefore all the length measurements would have to be made at the bottom of the dress where all the appliques are attached. Sorry for all the questions…Thanks again in advance!!!

I’m not too sure about this but as far as I understood, Pronovias dresses just come in standard sizes that are altered. In cases where there is detailing at the bottom of the dress (e.g. lace) I think they actually remove the lace, cut the hem to size, then reattach it, rather than pulling the dress up from a seam at the waist or whatever if there is one present. I’m not sure if you understand what I mean… I think the best bet would be to talk to your consultant in the dress shop and the actual person who will be doing your alterations if you’re worried. Good luck!
P.S. Aren’ts Pronovias dresses beautiful? I’m so happy to be a Pronovias bride too!!

I didn’t order Formentera but I did love it! (It was too heavy for my petite frame). I was told by each place I went to with Pronovias that they do offer hollow to hem. And with that dress, it is absolutely necessary so you do not loose any of the bottom. It’s an extra cost of course but I dont think you should risk cutting off the bottom. You might want to find another place that works with pronovias.

Pronovias doesn’t do hollow to hem but they do have different lengths that you can order the dresses in.

What is a hollow hem? I got the Formentera in March, but I’m not seeing the seamtress until july.
