COCKTAIL BLACK CHIFFON DRESS

Cocktail dress made in Silk chiffon with stole attached.


Bodice is draped and hand sewn in place with cascade drape at center front. The stole is attached to cascade, making the drape fall into the skirt giving it a wrap around look.





















Both stole and dress where hemmed with a zigzaged roll hem.


I used a roll hemmed attachement for the zigzag machine.

Beautiful and how clever is that stole design! Is the hem machine zigzagged and then hand rolled, or all machine? I am faced with a chiffon hem myself right now and would love to know your technique. Thank you.

Bunny, I have a roll hem attachment for the zigzag sewing machine. That is how I finished the hem. The stole is rectangular, making it easier being on the straight grain. The dress hem was the challenge being curved; it takes lots of practice and patience to get “your way” to manipulate the fabric.

Good luck hemming your chiffon.

It looks beautiful. Very different the top and the bottom: I was surprised to see the bottom picture. And I love surprises. So flowing...

Saludos Cruz.- felicitaciones por el vestido, pues sinceramente tiene todos los buenos calificativos: elegante, sobrio, bien hecho, etc. etc. Un modelo que no atiende a modas y que será un "must" intemporal para la persona que tenga el placer de usarlo. Me encanta la terminación del dobldillo zig-zag, ya sabes que yo soy muy aficionado a terminar así también. ahhh..y sigues con el negro, que pasión, verdad?.

Un abrazo y hasta pronto, Paco
