What are you most proud of? I love the way the dress turned out. I really enjoyed working all the hand techniques and most proud of very sturdy hand stitched zipper.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a toile (or muslin) and take your time - these are not projects to be rushed. If you think it will take you two weeks to make then give yourself three weeks so you can really enjoy the process.

Nice job! My Grandmother made and wore that style in a double knit fabric.
