What's the Easiest Way to Hem Already Hemmed Drapes
I'm finally getting new drapes for throughout the house. I love the floor to ceiling look and am striving for that (or very close).
As close as we can measure, it's 108", I purchased 108" drapes but they are just a tad too long (I want them to be just above the floor to hand freely). I've resigned myself, that I will have to hem.
For some reason, I'm too nervous to take out the old hem, not knowing what I'll end up with ie, a previous hem line etc. I fold the existing 3" hem up and which left a 1.5" space at the top and bottom which was acceptable. Then I thought, what if I just folded it over 1.5" but it's a bit thick. The drapes didn't seem to fold right as it was all bunched up.
Is there any easy way to get around, not cutting, and just folding these under and still have them lay right. I am clueless to all this.
