Here is our lady with an angled hem. 

The tunic has two pants options.

I have also posted the las file for anyone who wants to play in PE.

I really like angled/asymmetrical hems particularly the length of 2 & 3. I also like these on dresses too. I know this is not what we re discussing here but off on a tangent a little, I also like a shirt tale hem on the back of tops as this, together with the angled hem, has some coverage whilst also showing some length to the legs.

The diagonal diagonal hems draw the eye away from the wider parts of the body. I wonder if it would be more effective layered over a straight horizontal hem. I actually preffer the third and fourth figures but wonder what the difference is in the two.

Two and three have my vote too. I've enjoyed all the interesting options - an eye opener. I never considered angled/asymmetrical hems but would now; I especially like 2 and 3 and agree with the idea that a shirt tail hem is the right choice for the back. Thanks for this thread!

Anyone have thoughts about the two tunic length tops?

Personally, I think #2 is more pleasing to the eye.

The tunic is the same on each one. It is the width of the pants that is different.

It seems that no. 2 because of the pants give a slimmer and taller look.

Personally I dislike the asymmetric hem but I can't give a sensible reason why. Perhaps its just because the hem drags the eye down to the lowest point. However the slightly wider pants options seems a little more pleasing. It seems to reduce focus on the diagonal.

Wow. It is striking how much longer and leaner the figures look (to me) with the front hem V'd.

I prefer the 1st and 2nd V'd hem lengths the best.

I have made a lot of V-front vests because of this. I am 5'2" tall!

Another option for me to look at, thank you Karen. I have dropped the hem at the front and back a little, creating a curved hem but haven't tried the v hem yet, but can now see how it would work. I also prefer the first and second lengths.

I have always thought that designs that angle toward my parts that I don't want to emphasize should not be used. May have to rethink that. Of course our model has an hourglass figure. Not sure how that would look on a pear.

Looking at the blank drawings I prefer 1 and 3 but look at how coloring them in changes things. (I'm beginning to remember how to use layers).

Magazines have been showing wild patterned pants and all I can think is ish! When I see this patterned pant under a solid tunic I think maybe not so bad.

I also like the flowered pants with the solid tunic.

Never thought I wouldd say this but I'm loving the flowered pant/solid top too! I like the length of the top in #3 is flattering with these pants..

I am liking #3, too. I thought #2 looked good on the balanced figure, but not so much on the fuller hip. The longer length doesn't look bad, but to me, it looks dated. Maybe it isn't and I am the one that needs to catch up.

(I'm beginning to remember how to use layers).


 

I have to laugh at myself.  When I said "I'm beginning to remember how to use layers" I was talking about my photo editing program!  It does fit the topic, just wish it were true.
