|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Retro / Vintage, Traditional, Holiday|
What materials did you use? cotton, japonette for skirt lining, cotton blend for inner lining, muslin for strengthening, Petersham ribbon, clasps for waist-stay
What are you most proud of? I'm proud of all the hand-sewing I did. I only stabbed my fingers about a dozen times and drew blood only about three times, so... pretty good stats!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? I detailed the entire project on my blog. It includes some tips like... even though it's the fashion fabric, leave large seam allowances!
