    Default Making Wings of Isis shorter?

    I have my satin chiffon Wings of Isis for sale and a fellow student is interested in purchasing them but she is quite a bit shorter than I am and they are way too long - by perhaps a foot. Her idea is to cut them shorter and hem them by hand along the edge. What do you all think? Doable? If it's going to mean her being left with wings she can't really use then I will let her know that. If anybody has experience doing this I'd appreciate their tips.

    It is doable, but I chose a different solution for mine by rolling the wings up by the neck band and then stitch them in place (at least on me, this part is hidden by the hair anyway). Then I can redo it if necessary or if I want to sell them to someone taller than me it'll just take a minute to undo it.

    Thanks for that tip Diamona. The woman interested in buying them has long hair so that should work for her.
