The Sorbet Dress

Here are some little details from the Sorbet Dress. I used Hug Snug as hem tape. Hug Snug is a rayon ribbon that is used to finish seams or as a hem tape like I used it. Here is a tutorial on how to finish seams with Hug Snug. It's a really pretty and couture way to finish seams. On this dress I didn't finish the seams since it'll be gently worn, lined, and handwashed.

Here is a detail I am very proud of. I used a hand stitch called a pickstitch as an understitching for the lining of the dress, since understitching by machine was well nigh impossible and one doesn't want the lining popping out of the dress! Here is a tutorial on how to pickstitch.

More pics later!
