So I'm going out tonight, just chosen my dress and the hem has all unwraveled! The dress is polyestre and viscose ans is quite stretchy. if I sew the hem with a normal running stich, how can i make sure the dress stretches so I can walk.
Any fast help is great.

You need to sew it with a herringbone stitch, that is a crossover stitch, looks like a row of crosses, and you sew the backwards from left to right, they will give with the fabric.
