The Francaise, The Fourth


I finished the sleeves and am currently working on the bottom hem. I decided to line this bottom hem with an additional strip of silk. I’ve seen in  plenty of existing Francaises and suspect that it’s some sort of hem/dirt protection since the bottom hem of an Francaise usually suffers the most abuse.

After that the stomacher (and I’ve forgotten what exactly I did with my pet en l’air there (so much about practice)) and after that the dreaded trim. But the whole thing is a bit weird because without the trim I would be *this* close to being finished. With the trim… Not even close.
