What are you most proud of? The fit. I've been working really hard on fitting garments. It looks better on me than the dress form. This was my first full-bust-alteration. Worked great. Now I'm really stoked and have 5 more dressed lined up!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you don't already know your necessary pattern adjustments, start with a muslin (cheap fabric). BTW, choose top and dress sizes based on your upper chest measurement instead of bust measurement.

Really cute dress. Kiwi is a great color for spring and summer. Thank you for sharing.
