Before" pictures are on the left, "after" pictures are on the right.
I wanted to include the above picture because it shows two ways of hemming the same dress. The first picture is the original hem. The middle picture is the dress with pick-ups pinned in the front. Pick-up are a low cost option. They add volume and change the design a bit. This bride chose to go with a regular hem, (on right) which is more expensive than the pick-ups, but it maintains the original look of the dress.
