    Can you share simple ways you hem a skirt.

    Lot of these online instructions are simply too complicated.

    I with to shorten a maxi skirt by two inches. So far, I folded two inches, and ironed it, but I am yet to sew with sewing machine.

    Any simple ideas?

    Honestly, this maxi skirt will be worn under a long kurta.

    Your description of how you'd wear it makes it seem like the original hem is better be left alone. You need a tuck that is closer to the waist, rather than shorten at the hem. The tuck will be hidden by the long kurtha.

    This is a wrap dress though ..... as it is i wear all the way up to my bust (below where bust starts). It creates bulk that needs to be managed .... I am self-conscious of that ...
