What are you most proud of? The amount I have learned in this course and the improvements I have made. Especially learning about 3 gathering stitches for sleeve cap which made putting in the sleeves almost magical!!! The photos don't show the competed sleeves but they are now done and I am onto the hem. The the final leg for the lining....

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow and carefully, practice on scrap material any new stitches, etc. And ENJOY the process!!

Lots of work, eh? I have yet to start my dress. I will use a different pattern as I am a size larger than this pattern is. But it will have princess lines on it.

Oh my yes - I am sewing from dawn til dusk but the end result will be worth it. Good luck with yours - I look forward to seeing your dress.

Wonderful pink with all my heart! If there was only ONE color in the world, let it be PINK! SO Sweet!

Oh I so so agree - the pattern cover had pink and that was all I could think of for this dress - I feel like a Japanese Geisha in a pink Kimono when I try it on and keep bowing ha ha!!!
