What are you most proud of? I didn't cut any corners. Took my time to do it all with care. It was admired by all at the wedding and I have a beautiful dress that I can use over and over.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the time to really work on the muslin. The dress is deceiving because it's not symmetrical. Though it is marked as "Easy" by Vogue patterns, there are certain techniques about the handling of the required fabric that are not included in the instructions.
