What are you most proud of? I made a full muslin for the first time and made all the pattern alterations myself. I also used boning for the first time. I'm just super proud that it all came together in the end.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I wrote a post afterwards about everything I learn't during this process here: http://thecuriouskiwi.wordpress.com/2011/02/11/how-to-sew-your-own-wedding-dress/ but my biggest bit of advice is to just give it a go! You never know what you can accomplish until you try. Take your time, get advice from where ever you can and just throw yourself at it, you can do it ;-)
