Customer's Dress

Hi, sorry it's been a week (or so!). I finished my customers dress and she collected it last Sunday. It's a one-shouldered shift dress, princess seams, with 2.5 circular frills. She had seen Amanda Holden in a similar dress when Britain's Got Talent was on and that gave her the idea. The photo doesn't do the dress any justice; it's a lovely coral colour and a good quality matt satin. The lining was finished with french seams and because I didn't want any hand stitches to show through on the right side, I used a 10cm wide bias strip of lining and made a false hem - which means the dress lining was hand stitched to that, rather than the dress.
