How can I make a uneven offset?

I want to offset this shape with an uneven offset, Essentially, I want 1 mm at the top and 7 mm at the bottom and I need the transition to be as smooth as possible. Can it be done?

 

Thanks

Do you mean while using MM's offset tool? Can you take a screen and sketch what you want? Then I'll show you how to make that shape.

Any means necessary. Right now I did it using the Offset tool by cutting parts in the mesh and offsetting them for different distances, But the precision is not the best. Here's a picture :

This is the print of the interior of a prosthetic leg socket. We need to different offset because we need space for the part that has uneven thickness.

 

If you have any other solutions, let me know. thanks.

When set your offset to 7mm and click on 'soft transition' and slide it all the way up 200mm (or whatever the length of the leg is.
