What materials did you use? The fashion fabric is a wool / polyester blend in a very small herringbone pattern. (This doesn't show up well in the digital photos.) The lining is a black rayon / polyester blend.

What are you most proud of? I'm proud that I stuck with it and took my time to do the best job that I could.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My advice echos that of many others: watch & re-watch the lessons, take your time and do not rush. Enjoy the sewing process.

Thank you! I actually used 4 midriff pieces (2 in front, 2 in back). I tried unsuccessfully to just use 1 piece in the front but that didn't work out with the herringbone pattern in the fabric. Luckily I had enough fabric to recut those midriff pieces. :)

Congratulation, beautiful dress. I love your finishing of the neckline! Did you use a binding or piping technique?
