What materials did you use? Blue satin/shantung reversible fabric with blue cotton poplin lining.

What are you most proud of? Creating a pattern just for me. It has been a huge learning curve, but I understand so much more through this experience. There's still some things I need to finish (waist stay, hem although I'm still tossing up changing it to a 3/4 circle skirt), but what I've learned is invaluable.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just try stuff out and don't be afraid to do it. You will make mistakes, but embrace them as part of the learning process and you will come out of this experience with a gorgeous dress and whole new understanding of dressmaking.
