I had to take a couple of pictures outside because this fabric gets so shiny with the flash. The outside ones turned out really nice.
The hem. This is called a knife-edge hem. You turn your hem and sew 1/4" from the edge, trim all the fabric away, and sew another 1/4" hem.
The slit at te front. It does go pretty low but it is still conservative because the slit remains closed, mostly.
My cuffs. You where suposed to cover all raw edges by folding the band inside and topstitching but I like this better.
I really like these shoes.
