What materials did you use? I took my granddaughter to the local fabric shop and let her pick the fabrics from the quilting section.

What are you most proud of? She got lots of compliments about her "nice gown" - it was the most complete costume of any of the students on the field trip. We even researched footwear and were able to find something appropriate. She was a happy girl that day.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When making a pattern from scratch, make both sides, pin them together, and try them on. Don't forget to add your seam allowances. If you are an advanced seamstress, just have fun with it.
