What are you most proud of? I am so proud of making this family even happier on this special day, I have created a dress that has so much meaning and hopefully will remain in the family for additional generations. I have been refashioning and upcycling items for years and plan to publish additional projects for review.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure the dress you are starting with is clean. Lay out the pattern on the dress before making any cuts to utilize the correct grain as much as possible. I had to fudge the belt by piecing it for the correct length. Add an embellishment on the waist. I created the rose with pearl accents.
