I thought that this product could help me raise the hems on skirts/dresses that were too long. However, it was tough to do that because it required so many strips to go all around the hem. Also, it didn't look totally even and the gaps between the strips were visible and parts of the hem would fall down. I think this product would be better for use if you had something that was already hemmed but fell out in one place, as a temporary spot repair. However, for that use you could just use regular fashion tape.
