What materials did you use? "silky solids" synthetic fabric

What are you most proud of? Taking my sewing skills to a new level and accomplishing techniques I'd never attempted before resulting in the most detailed garment I've ever made :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This dress takes time. I can usually make a dress start to finish in 4-5 hours. This was about 3 solid days of work for me. If I make it again I think it would go much much faster, but the first time is slow with watching the video for each step, pausing, replaying, replaying again, sewing, checking you did it right, etc. If you are making this for a special occasion I would recommend starting it a minimum of a week ahead of time. Totally worth the effort though!
