What materials did you use? Jersey Knit

What are you most proud of? That I completed it and it's definitely a dress I'll be getting a lot of wear out of.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would definitely recommend making this dress a size smaller than your actual measurements as there is a lot of ease built into this pattern. Next time I make this I will definitely make it a size smaller as it's a bit big on me... but that's OK.. it's super comfortable to wear. I sewed in 1/2" clear elastic around the neckline which definitely seems to have helped stop it from gaping when I bend over as you can see in one of the pics I've shared.

Beautiful dress, Chris! Love the fabric and the fit. Might have to try this one myself!

Love your dress and your peplum top too.. I just bought Barbara's class and can't wait for my pattern to come in.. I am wanting to take the sewing with knits class too.. thanks for sharing.

Thank you and you're welcome. They are definitely two great classes and you'll learn lots of tips and you're sewing confidence will get a boost too :)

Gorgeous! The fabric is stunning. You know what? I won a pattern pyramid over on my blog and the person who won prior to me, took this EXACT pattern out of the pyramid and added a bra pattern. I'm so disappointed now because this dress came out so beautiful.

I love this fabric too... and it feels nice on your skin. What a shame they chose this pattern as it sews up well... you might just have to get yourself one :)

Where did you get this fabric?

It was a gift from my mother inlaw so I'm not 100% sure where she got it from.
