What materials did you use? I used black linen and added a cotton trim to the neck line and bottom

What are you most proud of? The fact that it fits so well. One of the best things I have learned is making adjustments for a rounded back.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch all the videos through before you start to give you an idea of what to expect. Start off by making the original version of the pattern and that way you will have made all the alterations to the pattern which makes making another version so much easier. I took Barbara's advice and took out some of the fullness from the peplum but think I took a little too much so when I make this again I will leave the peplum a little fuller.

Excellent job! If I saw you wearing this at the office, I would ask where you bought it, I would love to have this for myself. I think I will try to make one of these too.
