What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I actually finished it. I also removed the bust darts and added the bust material to gathered area. I wish I knew how to best eliminate them all together with moving or gathering.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a lot of ease in the upper bodice especially if you are using a knit instead of woven fabric.

Your dress is beautiful. You mentioned wishing you knew how to remove the darts from a knit garment. I just finished Suzy Furrer's course Patternmaking Basics: Bodice Slopers and she explains how to do just that at the end of the class when she shows you how to convert a woven pattern sloper for knit fabric. I will say that that her classes build on one another and that this is the second class in the series. To best understand it, Suzy recommends starting with the Skirt Sloper and after taken them in that order, I completely agree. Good luck.
