What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely make a muslin. And even when making the garment from your fashion fabric, hand sew the collar and shoulder before taking it to the machine. The pattern is well drafted and goes together well.

You did it I am tired of waiting around on stuff for the sew-a-long I have joined for a new winter coat. Need some instant gratification. I have a wonderful stash of fabrics and this pattern and after your beautiful creation post the desire. I want work on the muslin this weekend. Thank you for the inspiration :-)

Scheri, I can't wait to see how it turns out. Take time with this one! The details need patience. Going to try to make a simple skirt using couture techniques this weekend. I'll post it when it's done. Found the turquoise silk for my daughter. Still waiting for it to arrive. Happy sewing.

Looks like you're working on Gertie's sew-along! What fun that must be! Can't wait to see your finished product.

This is beautiful in eggplant. Your detail in sewing is fabulous. I have seen some posts of this dress elsewhere and it did NOT look so good. Thank you for posting, I have this pattern and look forward to possibly having time to sew for me.

Thank you, Buttons. This is a fun one to put together. Don't rush it though . . . be patient and it will reward you. Post some pics when you get it done.
