How to create the PERFECT hanging hem on anyone

After years of working on couture gowns, one thing became clear. We are not entirely even... For example. After a broken bone is healed, that bone may be slightly more compressed, creating a slight difference in the way we stand. This can be minuscule but when sewing a gown and trying it on the only way the hem will look perfect is to measure from the floor up. This little tool below is most used by professionals in the business but can also be a great tool for anyone who seeks perfection so to speak. If you do not want to spend the money on this, then keep an eye out for it at thrift  stores or vintage shops. OR plan B, get a ruler and pin the hem manually from the floor up. (click on the image for a link to hemming tool)
