What materials did you use? at the muslin point. dress will be made using a Maggy London floral cotton

What are you most proud of? Getting a very nice fit on the bust. It may not look like it on the dress form, but after several attempts, the top fits beautifully. Plus size fitting is so challenging that I plan to use this muslin with thread tracing method often.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch all the videos so you know and understand where you are going. Also, take your time. If you get frustrated, walk away. Listen to Susan's warning about the wax - it can be messy.

Ofab, Thank you. The angle of the photo was a little ackward but I love this dress. I was told never to wear a fuller skirt. HA I have an online sewing group that encouraged me to make more fitted clothes.
