What materials did you use? I used Satins and Tulle, lots of Tulle.

What are you most proud of? That I was able to make my daughter feel like Cinderella for her Homecoming Dance. She loved the fabric, the tulle that made a mess of my work area with all the glitter, and her face when she was getting her picture taken. She loved the dress which in turn boosted my confidence at sewing more elaborate patterns.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow and you need to have experience in sewing. Read, read and read the instructions before you even start and have a picture in your mind as your reading when the steps are. It made a world of difference. I did get stumped on the bodice but I walked away and went back later and by then it clicked. Also have fun!

I agree with Pamillia. The dress looks great on the young lady. I think her completion and the dress color complement each other. I love the skirt part of the dress and the flower you made. Nice accent !! Just lovely!!!
