wanted to comment a bit. I love all the suggestions, especially the
use of linen to give your hem some 'heft'.
However, I personally wouldn't stray too far from horsehair braid
(although any you can easily find is plastic/nylon). It has its own
degree of stiffness and it flexes, perfect of course for giving hems
body without too much weight. Perhaps using linen or woven
interfacing in combination?
Asking a question here can often generate a lot of options...I learn
a lot just from reading about solutions to problems or challenges!
Good luck, and I hope you let us know how it turns out.
