What are you most proud of?
I'm very proud of the way this turned out--there is a lot of hand sewing, but it was worth it! I'd never made anything before that used boning or that had such a shaped bodice, and they really turned out nice! The lapped zipper and vented hem also turned out beautifully...I just need more reasons to wear this now!
