I wore the other dress I hemmed today. Here's the side by side comparison:
Again, I didn't hem this one a lot either. I did take it up 3 1/4", which sounds like a lot, but looks subtle in the photos. I do think it looks more proportional. I'm very happy that I did it.
Here's how I wore it today:
I just love this dress. I bought it in university while I worked at Ragpickers. It was one of the first vintage dresses I ever bought. It was made by a home ec teacher in the 50's. Sadly I don't have the belt. I always wonder if it was striped or solid.
