What are you most proud of? Finding my apex on the princess seams and fitting my cup size

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't start rushing to finish - this lead to slightly uneven front seams when I changed the neckline. Also, if you've changed your eating habits, measure before you use measurements from as little as two months ago. I was pleasantly surprised to have to take in the front waist and the back slightly.

Your outfit makes me happy. It's great to see how many different styles and looks can come out of this class. Your modification has helped me to pinpoint what I don't like about the class pattern. I think that I don't like jewel necklines. I did like the Peter Pan collar idea. Hmmm.

Thank you, I should also take a photo where I'm not wearing the wigs - there's no bunching at the waist then :)

Thank you, I almost cried when I realised that I was going to have a waist because the space needed for the bust had been adjusted.

I love these colors on you and the fit is terrific. Congrats and keep it up!
