What materials did you use? Fabric that was not my first choice, but that ran out (online). This fabric was too flimsy and I ended up needing to make a lining.

What are you most proud of? the bodice cups!! hand sewing, thread tracing, etc.

Wow! small world..... The dress is gorgeous, and I am sure that it would look even better on you!

Yes, very small world!!! I've never worn it but thank you! I am not digging our current project on flickr. My muslin is hideous. Might slow down and see how everyone else's turns out. Are you on Facebook?
