Burda - 03-2008-115 - Pleated Dress Part IV

It's done and I love it!! The full review is on PR.
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.
With black shoes. I think I will buy strappy silver sandals. I've been looking at Zappos.com.
My button and tube. I wish I could have gotten the tube thinner.
Front with bad lighting.
Back with really bad lighting.
Front pleats. I love all the details.
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.

That is sooooo flattering on you. It really shows off your slim shape. A very feminine dress, but your fabric choice keeps it from crossing the line to prissy. You simply look fantastic!

Such a pretty dress. It looks great on you. You don't look like a Mom of 3 little ones. I admire how much sewing you get done each season. Great job!
