Here are a few pictures of the 4-5 inches I added to the bottom of Naia's new red costume. The pictures are a bit blurry and dingy, no thanks to my old yellowed cutting board that's been around since I was a kid. The new red hem actually matches much better than it looks. It makes the dark red sequins really pop.
Tape added to protect beading when cut.
Beaded trim removed to be sew back on to new hemline.
Shiney red fabric added, bead trim reattached, additional beaded "leaves" added to extend the design.
New beadwork. Sequins and beads are different sizes from original but close enough to fool the eye.
