What are you most proud of? This dress is a re-fashion of a dress that I made last year that I loved, but which was a lot too big this year. I'm really proud of being able to adapt the old dress using this new pattern. Also, this was my first time using boning, and it worked out really well!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just take it step by step. It's easy to get overwhelmed at the beginning with all the materials you need and all the pattern pieces, but Gretchen's instructions are really great!

Looks fantastic Kendra!

Thanks! I forgot to comment on the One Week One Thing last Monday, so wasn't able to add it to the finished projects today! Hopefully I will remember the next time I make this dress :)

Wow it looks so nice. I am hopeful after seeing your pic 1 that maybe with more work I can get my muslin fitting better. Yours results speak to your hard work.

It's completely worth it to keep working on that muslin until it's just how you want it! You can do it!

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!
