This seems like a no brainer but I got a $70 dress that I am hemming to cocktail length and I am so worried I will screw it up. I already cut off what I dont need but how do I finish it? Its satin and the previous hem was almost like a serged bottom but not quite it was like ||||||| but really tightly close together, it wasnt a traditional folded over and sewn straight type hem.

Anyone know how to do this??

I believe it is called a blind hem, here is a link to a video on blind hemming: http://www.expertvillage.com/video/25022_mend-clothes-machine-skirt.htm

I would do it by hand, with a very fine needle & perfectly matching thread. Press into place first & then sew.
