What are you most proud of? The fit of the dress and how wearable it is. The wrap took a long time to complete but I really loved how it turned out. I made this outfit for my daughters 20th birthday, but I have borrowed her wrap a couple of times. ; - )

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This type of construction is so relaxing to do and the final product is so self satisfying. Take your time and enjoy the process.

That's just beautiful, and your daughter wears it wonderfully! It's interesting to see the wrap and how she's wearing it. Is this one based on the pattern in the book, with ties behind the back? If so, I might have to make it!

This wrap is from AC's Studio Sewing and Design book. I love this wrap and need to make myself one as well.

What a gorgeous outfit - you did a fantastic job, and your daughter is beautiful!

Thank you, and it is one of my favorite outfits that I have made so far. I like how it can be dressed up or down lending itself for more wearability.

Beautiful outfit. How long did it take you?

I made this outfit back in April/May so I really do not remember specifically, but the dress did not take as much time as the wrap did. The wrap has many rows of stitching, but it was well worth the effort as I loved the results so much that I will make myself one as well. The dress still takes time with making the stencil, painting and hand stitching as there was the learning curve with each, yet the actual time to construct the dress was relatively minimal.
