What materials did you use? Silky print, rayon lining, lightweight boning, standard zipper.

What are you most proud of? I picked up the pattern because I thought it would be a beginner level... and at the time I was a beginner. Instead, I got a crash course in side zippers, boning, and installing lining. Wedding guests thought the dress was store-bought!

Great dress. They say the devil is in the details.

Thanks! Yes, the devil was really in the details on this dress... but it was so worth it. :)

Yep, I'd agree with the beginner thing. This is my very first pattern and very first experience at garment making....learning loads of new techniques, but it's slow going!

Oh, wow! You are brave to have this be your first pattern. Don't worry about slow going -- it's worth it in the end. :)
