What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure to test the bodice in the muslin, and take Gertie's advice on the loose fit, since once you add all the real layers (fashion Fabric, interfacing, lining-boning) you would end up with a bit smaller version and if you are a plus size gal this does affect the end result, I had to add a trim to the cup for "modesty".

Hi, thank you, I used plain cotton, with a golden detail, and lined it with red polka dot cotton. I had a great time making this dress, I just wore it to my Valentines date, I will post the picture.
