What are you most proud of? I spent a lot of time hand-sewing on this project so it's nice just to see it completed.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If your lace has a pattern that doesn't repeat regularly, (like the lace in this dress), make sure you buy extra so that you can match side seams etc.

Sweet, but the pattern in the main fabric is a little 'busy' for my tastes. Good job on the design, though!!!! Over all: 10 stars!!!! (as in 10 out of 10 for creativity)~~
