What are you most proud of? The execution. So, in this project, the seam ripper and I became BFFs (made it for a gala, and finished it the morning of!). But I feel like my sewing and fitting skills have grown exponentially.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep the seam ripper handy. Oh yes, and make sure to keep the skirt fabric out of the way when sewing your skirt to your bodice (but then, you've got that seam ripper handy, right??)

This is a beautiful dress, I personally would like it even more with an even hem, choice of fabric perfect and bust detail real cute.

Thanks for the lovely comments and apologies for all the crazy replies!! Apparently when you hit "enter" on an ipad it publishes the comment 4 times! Can't seem to remove them. Ah well, tech-embarrassment...

I'm constructing this Gertie pattern right now! Thank you for the inspiration. Your dress looks absolutely wonderful. Great color choices, perfect fit. I was having a fussy time placing the bra after needing alterations in that area, but your photo helped me make an informed decision on how to resolve the issue. Fantastic job!
