I am so relieved to be finished with Look #4, a cocktail dress made of 100% silk charmeuse. I love the drama of the diagonal hem line that falls nearly to the floor at the side, making this dress too formal for daytime, but perfect for an early summer evening out. The bodice is cut on the bias for a close fit that still provides some give. I am fairly pleased with how this look finally turned out, after a revision to the initial design. If produced for retail, this garment would require slightly different finishing techniques. In particular the skirt needs an inner lining that would cover the inside edge of the hem, which is just too conspicuous with the way the skirt falls (i.e., normally one does not see quite so much of the inside hem of the garment). A lining would ensure that the inside was as clean in appearance as the outside. Please share your thoughts!
