I started this dress a while ago, but haven't done the hem yet because every time I try it on, my boyfriend sings "Sadie the cleaning lady" at me. He makes a good point. What do you think? Mad Men work chic or cleaner's uniform? Should I hem it or bin it?
Thanks so much to Melanie of seamstress: poppykettle for her excellent tutorial on welt pockets. I've been wanting to try them for ages, and they were surprisingly not that hard to do. I'm usually really lazy with my technical skills, but it is my new year's resolution to try out more.
