What are you most proud of? All of it! It was such a steep learning curve for me as I was only a beginner sewer before. I learnt so many new techniques and am a much better sewer now.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're a beginner then try making a few simpler dresses first. Take your time, try to be zen about any ripping out you have to do. And don't skimp on making a muslin!
