Look mom, no hem!

I made this silk dress for a wedding we're going to in Spain.  If you look closely you might notice that something is missing...

Have you spotted it?  A hemline without a seam!  I don't know about you, but sewing a hem is probably my least favourite part of the sewing process, especially when I'm using delicate fabrics like silk. It drives me crazy.

My hubby, knowing my hang-up, got to talking to someone who laser cuts all kinds of materials and hey-presto, I have a silk dress and I don't have to stitch the hem!

Now if only he could find me some fairies who fit and insert center back zips...

Happy week-end x
