Sewing - is there any point in unpicking am overlocked seam?

I haven't done any sewing for decades but am back a little. I was to take a ruffle off the bottom of a hem, I've just seen that not only is there the seam, it has been overlocked too.

I could just chop it off but really wanted to keep the length. Waste of time?

Are you going to have to hem it once you have removed the ruffle? If so just cut it off and have a small hem. Might be easier to sew the hem by hand and it will probably give a better finish anyway.

Thanks for that, very logical! Cheers!
