Oh boy...our ship leaves on Saturday..

I have three pairs of pants I was supposed to have hemmed and totally forgot. Is there a seamstress on board?
If not I guess maybe I can try a temporary solution...does anyone have any suggestions? I don't dare cut and hem them myself. Being 5 ft tall is no fun sometimes!

No seamstress onboard, how about the iron on hems?

Most dry cleaners have a seamstress. You will probably pay a rush fee but if you go right now you may be able to pick them up by noon tomorrow

I like capri length tights, especially as a shorty myself. No hems necessary. They look adorable under little sundresses, are WAY more comfy then pants, and have eating room. And are very fashionable.

Actually tape is not a bad idea. I used to use masking tape in a pinch. Just fold up the hem to your desired length and tape it down. Nobody is really going to be looking that closely at your pants during dinner. Duct tape is too sticky and would ruin the fabric.

Call a dry cleaner and see if they have tailoring services.

Safety pins. cheap and reliable.

My wife's wedding dress was held together by them (after she was up all night before sewing)

I've actually stapled mine up -head hung in shame-. I'd suggest double sided sticky tape or even better a YouTube video on how to hem pants! It's really not that hard

Thanks for the replies...

haha Duck tape!

I think I'll try the iron on tape. My mom used to hem all of my pants by hand, I kind of know how to do it but try to avoid having to do it.
