What are you most proud of? The vent at the back. I've never attempted this before. I would like to make the next dress with a large inverted pleat rather then a vent, but I'm not sure yet how to go about this so I just might go with what I've already learned.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience! Sometimes one seam could take me a whole evening to do! pin, tack, sew, unpick, re-sew, unpick tacking stitches, catch stitch seams..........etc etc.....

Lovely - can't wait to see your red dress! Hope you are planning on getting lots of use out of your "practice" dress - you did a beautiful job.

Your dress is fab, such a nice fit - and great colour. Inverted pleats are easy to do, so give it a go. You can just google how to do them. As for the wrap, just try it out on your dress form and drape it to see if you like it.
