What are you most proud of? I had never tried putting a zipper in by hand - great technique! Matching the print was a fun and exciting challenge. I'm thrilled with the outcome.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take it one step at a time, enjoy the process. Do not try to do this class with a deadline approaching. Do it for fun the first time. This dress took many hours!

Oh, and No, I don't have a blog or web site for my knitting. Taking a break from that too to work on sewing clothing that fits. :)

Excellent! You made so many great decisions with this dress. Your choice to do piping at the waist, careful attention to the fit around the arms, perfect hem length, the flattering print and colors with your complexion - all beautifully put together. Couture is about more than just technique; it is about putting it all together in a combination that looks fantastic on the wearer. You nailed it, and you look fabulous!
