What materials did you use? Light cotton fabric (had in stash) Bright pink bias binding for neckline, sleeves and bottom of peplum Purple 22" concealed zipper Pur

What are you most proud of? That I finally finished it. Learning how to adjust the pattern and my first attempts at using bias binding.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get started, rewatch the videos. Make sure you attach the peplum to the bodice with a really straight line otherwise it looks lopsided and awful - I had to reredo mine!
