    Hi Valentinau, you are absolutely right. I was so kin to photograph it, I have not press the hem enough. I have done this afterwards. I must say, after adding iron on underlining, it became so thick, it was a really tough job :-). Well noticed!

    The red dress looks very nice, except the hem line is not finished very well.
