What materials did you use? Cotton fabric from Ikea, polyester thread, and an invisible zipper.

What are you most proud of? The fact that I made a garment that is actually wearable out of the house! I know a friend of mine will love it, and it will fit her beautifully. It has darts, french seams, an invisible zipper, and facings for the armholes and necklines.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a toile and adjust it before you adjust the pattern. I did make the toile, but I was a bit hasty and adjusted my pattern without actually modifying the practice garment (d'oh!). If I hadn't been in such a hurry, the bust may have fit much better. Oh well, lesson learned.

It is! They have super cute fabric, but most of it is terrible to use for clothing, as I have found out :)

Your dress turned out great! I think the fit is great on you. Nice job!
