I am currently making bridesmaid's dresses that have satin panels with organza godets. I know that I want a rolled hem for the organza godets but am unsure how to move from the rolled hem on the organza to the hem of the satin. Normally I would use a blind hem on the satin. I don't think this would work in this situation, however, since the two materials join together at every godet seam. Any suggestions would be truly appreciate. Roberta

I work in a bridal shop and we would probably just do a rolled hem all the way around in one continuous hem. We do mostly rolled hems on satin bridesmaid dresses, as we copy the factory finish. Another factory finish we see a lot is a half inch fused hem on satins-I prefer the rolled hem look better.

I've done serger rolled hems on multi-fabric gowns that work pretty well. A couple of tactics learned from experienced and talented PR members in this thread help a lot.

Thank you so much. I was thinking this might be the answer, but wasn't sure if it was appropriate, having never seen the combination hem. I really appreciate your help. You saved me, lol!!
