What materials did you use? 1/8" pink & white gingham in a cotton/poly blend, and a white dotted ? from my stash--leftover from a dress I made her mother when she was 4! The embroidery pattern came as a built in on my Janome 1100SE
What are you most proud of? I hadn't had lessons on the machine yet, but was able to play around with it and re-size, group and tilt the flowers, as well as fake my way thru stabilizers. And it turned out just like I envisioned! (except for the size)
What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's trickier than it looks. Save yourself a lot of frustrations and just follow the excellent instructions, don't go on automatic, even if you have made a million dresses before! Also, check the measurements of the pattern, don't go by size. I was hoping this would be the perfect summer dress for my February granddaughter, but it's going to be way big this summer. This size says 6-9 months, but could easily fit her 2 yr old brother!
