Good emergency fix

One of the groomsman's pants were too long. He used this hem tape to shorten the pants and said it worked great.

Took some time because the hem on my dress was really full, but this tape worked great.

Pros: easy to apply, small pieces made the hemline still flow Cons: none really, other than the time it takes

Made floor length dress not a mile long

Being just over 5ft tall, dresses are often way too long... long enough to puddle at my feet. This helped shorten a beautiful dress I wore to a friend's wedding. It was a lifesaver. A must have for future rentals of floor length dresses.

Does the job

Bought this when I rented the Nicole Miller Sleek Mila Gown. It was about 4 inches too long for me and the tape held up the hem all night.

Thank goodness for the hem tape!

The hem tape is very strong and durable...I was worried at first, but it hemmed my dress perfectly all night!

Perfect

Highly recommend. I am short, so all dresses are long on me. I knew what ever I got would need to be hemmed. This tape was perfect. I felt so sure of it. The tape comes in 4 inch strips, which makes it easy to apply. The box has 18 strips. I ordered one box, and felt I needed more. My dress had lining, so it was like hemming it twice. I wish I had three boxes. (The dress was very full and flowy.) I would purchase this again.

This tape saved my night!

I got a call the day before my rental was supposed to come in saying that the 0R dress was no longer fit to wear and that they only had the 0L available, so they included this tape for no added charge. I am 5'4, and with my 5.5 inch platform heels, the 0L was about 1.5" too long. I was worried that the tape would not be able to hold up the material of my dress (there was a LOT of beading and the dress itself was very heavy), but it lasted the entire night! I even used the same tape up top to keep the girls from hanging out!

Helped my dress to fall just the way I wanted it to!

My dress fell a little below my knees, making it hard to move around. It would have been hard to dance without the temporary hem tape! I was able to use it to take the dress up about a half an inch, and it stayed all night! Definitely worth the cost!

Effective!

It helped hold up about 10" of a very long and heavy (gorgeous dress); I used almost the whole package but it held up!

Hey! I'm about the same height and I'm considering ordering my dream dress in a long (because that's all they have), do you this this would work to hem that material?

Perfect to keep everything in its right place. I even used to keep the bust line in the right place.

Just add it to your bag... Came in handy on many occasions after as well.

Held material in place, no slip.

I wish that I had had the time and patience to use it on the bottom hem of my dress because I really think it would've helped. It held all night, through dancing and sweating.

It stayed on for more than 24 hours- never lost its stick!

I used the fashion tape for a floor length gown that I needed to shorten by several inches. It was a huge pain to put on, but that would happen with any fashion tape. I put the tape on 24 hours before the event and it never lost its stickiness.

Great!

I was worried about this not staying for the entire night but it did without a problem. I'm really short so my dress was way too long, but with this tape, I was able to make it the perfect length. Definitely recommend it!

I used the temporary hem tape to shorten a long dress to fit my 5'1" height. They certainly got the job done! Very easy to use, and held the dress up all night long.

SO EASY TO USE!

I took it on a trip because I was afraid the train of a flowy dress I was borrowing would be too long. I was able to use the tape strategically to hem the dress to the perfect length! This tape is a MUST HAVE in any girls emergency pack.

Love this tape!

This tape is great for shortening pants where the hem can't be seen. Best for use with dark colored pants, but not jeans where the hem is done in a different color thread. Tape holds well.

Great solution!

I rented the "Back in Action Romper" which was slightly too big on me. I used the hem tape to bring the shorts up about an inch and it worked perfectly. I made sure to measure the hem evenly, pinned it in place, and then ironed the new hem. Then I applied the tape in the fold with about a quarter inch between each piece of tape. The hem tape stayed in place after a full night of dancing and then came off easily the next morning.

Used in Tux Sleeves

Used on the sleeves of my husbands tuxedo cuffs. Didn't hold well but may have been because of the weight of the material.

Really good quality tape!!

The tape worked great for several hours, but after dancing and having it stepped on by guys dancing by me and other girls' heels, it fell and I was holding my dress up the rest of the night. The fabric on my dress was very heavy, I imagine the tape would be perfect on a dress with less heavy fabric.

Straightforward and easy to use

Totally did the job of hemming my RTR Shoshanna dress. Very clean and easy to use. Just don't forget to set aside some time to make the adjustments! (10-30 minutes) We did it by marking the length with the dress on, then "hemming" the remainder of the dress while it was off. P.s. - this was my first experience with this product. Would definitely use it again.

Kept me from tripping over a hem that was just a bit too long!

This tape is terrific for everything from hemming to getting something to STAY. Being small-busted, I often use it when I'm wearing a loose, low-cut top and don't want any over-exposure. On my most recent trip, a friend borrowed a piece that she divided in two to help keep her shoe straps from falling down off the back of her ankles. A must-have for every fashionista!
