How can I alter a dress to make it shorter, without having to re-hem it?
I'd like to just cut it off at the bottom to make it shorter, but I don't want to re-hem it because I'd like the ripped look. however, if its going to fray then i would take the time to hem it properly. the dress is cotton, if that makes a difference. would it fray if Im careful and handwash it? I'm trying to recreate a 90s grunge inspired ripped babydoll effect.
