    You have 3 choices..... 1 hem it up- you could use iron-on Stitch Witch if you don't sew, 2 move the rod up, 3 return it.
  • What type of shower curtain rod does she have? If it is a simple tension rod, just move it up a bit.

    Can you move the rod up a few inches that holds it?

      No , it is connected all around the tub! Another rod can't be placed anywhere cause there is no wall to connect it to. Thanks for trying to help

    Is the shower curtain solid fabric, or does it have one side that is vinly coasted/plasticized? If so, then if you choose to sew hem the bottom up, you will need to use a special sewing machine needle that pierces through the vinyl without ripping it.
    If you choose the no sew pre-glued tape that irons on, you do risk melting the vinyl and getting your iron gunked up.

      Shower liner is all fabric. I am afraid if we cut is it will all fray also has the magnetic circles in it to hold it down. Thanks for trying to help!

    if made out of material that doesn't fray, just cut it off like you would the liner! Or you could take another fold in the hem.

    Can use hemming tape that requires ironing or hem on sewing machine or by hand

    As the curtain is all fabric, yes the cut-off bottom will fray if not folded under and sewn across to enclose the raw ends.
    Since you do want to keep the bottom intact as it has the magnets, then another option is to fold the curtain up the amount of inches it is too long, folding it up in the middle.
    Pin in place first, then sew across with the stitching line holding the fold down in place. Any one with a ruler and basic sewing skills shoud be able to do this easily.

    I had this problem with a fabric shower curtain with the best part of design at the bottom ...... so I took a big tuck at the top on the inside. Measure how much too long, carefully pin the tuck 1/2 that amount, press and sew along the top seam line, press flat and you've got it.
