How do I lift a gallgown like dress from dragging on the floor?
So I bought a very intricately beaded wedding gown for my Princess Celestia cosplay a few months back! Yes I know what youre thinking but it was perfect!!! It fit perfectly on my body....but Im a little short....
I wanted to hem the dress but theres TONS of beading and embroidery along the hem which is something I dont want to damage or remove entirely!
I debuted it at the last con I went to and my arms were killing me from grabbing on to the heavy material to prevent it from getting dirty, tripping on it, and preventing others from stepping on it!
Is there any way to raise the skirt by sewing or any other method?
