Hemming advice??

Ladies, I need your advice to hem allll that fabric at the bottom. Before I make the ugliest hem in the world and ruin the drape and look of the gown, can you tell me what you did? I don't mind about "authenticity" (read: I'll use a serger and be thrilled), so tell me what's best for this gown.

Serge and fold up once?

Double fold hem?

Rolled hem on serger?

Thank you for your advice. I have to finish this baby today.

[EDIT] I ended up practicing on scrap fabric to see what I liked best. Why didn't I think of that earlier? LOL! Anyway, I ended up going with a 3-thread overlock narrow hem on my serger. The rolled hem was a teeny puckery with this fabric.
