This of course is my favourite. Enough with the dark colours, the greys and blacks I have worn all winter. This is a really nice polished cotton sateen that I underlined in china silk.
I really wish I had the patience to underline all my summer dresses in china silk. It feels so good on my body. And of course the best thing about underlining is that you can sew your hemming stitches into the underlining and spare yourself the trauma of trying to make your hand stitches not show at all on the right side of your hem, which by the way, I consider to be impossible in anything with a sateen finish and I don't care if you are Claire Shaeffer even.
I love this dress. It is perfect for an occasion I haven't thought of yet.
