What are you most proud of? I am in love with the way I got it to fit properly. It is really my size! I also like the button-in detachable strap. More on that here:

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't skimp on the muslin-making step. It is a lot of work, but essential to get the dress to fit and get the right look. Here is my muslin:

Hi, beautiful choice of fabric and dress. Since Gerties Bombshell dress class isn't for sale anymore, would you like to sell me her class so I can take it? I've been wanting to take it and Craftsy said her class is discontinued. Thanks!
