What are you most proud of? I learned SO MUCH in this class; having only done a handful of basic sewing projects prior to this, I learned everything from making a buttonhole to numerous hand stitches and vintage techniques! I set myself a month deadline and despite the fact I devoted most of my free time and evenings to working on it, I met my goal! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid!! Set a plan for yourself and follow it, don't get overwhelmed. Give yourself lots of time and take it slowly - the end result is well worth it! :)

Beautiful! I want to try this but I have issues with the neckline, I am afraid to mess it up, but I do have a beautiful material!

you will need to do a muslin for the bodice anyway, so don't worry! If you take it slow, it's definitely do-able! ^__^
