What are you most proud of? This dress was made on a tight budget. I am proud of the fact that I put a godet into the back of the dress so boots/shoes and bare legs won't be seen. The goal of this dress was to put in a perfect zipper, which happened. I even put the lining in according to the video instructions.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the video on the invisible zipper and follow what Sunni shows. Do a sample if you are new at this. I didn't have to as I have inserted invisible zippers many times. My goal was to have no puckers and bunching. The reason it happened is: knit interfacing twice as wide as the seam allowance on the back center seam longer than the zipper, slowly sewing in the zipper, watching the video to do the bottom seam and then stitching carefully to accomplish that.
