What materials did you use? Existing dress made of a border print cotton.

What are you most proud of? So far, just having the courage to try it! And now, that I have something I'm not embarrassed to wear out and that's worth making a lining for at some point.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow in the thinking stage and it's amazing how much can be accomplished. Also, don't be afraid to hand sew!

Please do, you will not regret it! I incorporate the techniques into almost if not everything I make now. I also really recommend the free zipper class. I got some useful hints even though I've been sewing for a while.
