What are you most proud of? I did it! *And* it's wearable. How fabulous! It's not totally perfect, but it is a first attempt and I am looking forward to building on what I've learnt - which is volumes. I spent most of a week off work committed to it, but it was worth it. It was a fabulous experience and Paul is a wonderful 'teacher'.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's definitely worth watching the class through once before you begin. There's a lot of information and it's useful to get yourself in the right headspace and know what's tackled in the various sections - a question you may have may be resolved a little further along. Also, the questions asked by others who have done the class are well worth a read-through. Finally, I was working on an adjustable dummy (Miranda!) and I did find the instructions on working with her a little sketchy and I needed a little common sense and extra thinking time to adapt things to suit. However, now that's done, she'll never find herself un-muslined again! Huzzah for Miranda!

This looks great! I love your whole attitude about it and am glad you think you'll make other versions of this. The fit is great and I love the colored belt and your sense of fun!

Oh, Paul, thank you so much for your feedback! It's been an atrocious few weeks and it was splendid to get such a lovely comment. (Particularly from someone with a great 'sense of fun' themselves!) Since doing the course I've found that every dress I see and like, I now think of in terms of how to recreate through what I've learned. And I have an idea brewing... Thank you.

Fab. i broke my hand so have not been on here for a while, but hoping to carry on.

Ooo, ouch! Hope it's not too painful and stiff. Maybe sewing will be good physio. :-/

It really make me want to take the class! It is beautiful and a beautiful choice of fabric!
