What materials did you use? This is a combination of Simplicity 2648 for the bodice and Simplicity 1606 for the skirt. I used wool tweed for the dress, silk shantung for the piping, silk organza for the underlining and silk crepe de chine for the lining.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! None of it is hard; it's just time consuming. If you have questions, ask Susan; she is great.
