What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a toile- can seem like a waste of time- especially when using a comercial pattern but it saved so much time and worry in the long run! start a lot earlier than you think you need to and do lots of fittings- I did 3 in total. order fabric- especially lace- early- I waited 3 months for this to be delivered to me!! I will be looking for another source next time!

Sounds like a good idea, I too would like to take her class as I have a hard time getting fitted dresses to fit....
