What materials did you use? Satin butterfly print with sparkles and a pale blue pongee lining.

What are you most proud of? The fit isn't too bad - my next one will be perfect. I learned a lot from the course. I think next time I will make a further adjustment on the bust, lower the under bust dart a little more, angle the side dart. I made a very nice finish on the inside of the dress with a full by machine lining and a hand-sewn hem with some pretty blue hemming lace. My invisible zip worked out perfectly. I was a bit disappointed I didn't have enough fabric to get a good pattern match on the back of the dress

What advice would you give someone starting this project? A fitting buddy is nice to have but not essential. Once you have got your basic pattern and fit from this course, you can use it for all of your dress projects in future to make sure you cut the right size to start with - it's going to make fitting all my future projects so much easier. The finished dress isn't quite my style but the course has been invaluable. Thank you so much Linda.
