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.

Can you help me ... how much fabric did you need for the ruffles on the tied wrap? Thanks

Hi Nixixi, I used approx. 3/4 of a yard. Your yardage will depend on how wide you make your ruffles and how much you ruffle. I had 47 strips at a 1/2 width. I cut my strips on the cross grain and left the length so I was not limited to the number of ruffles I wanted to add. I love your jacket you made with the facets pattern. Did you use paint on that piece?

Thanks so much for the detail - that helps enormously. No, I didn't use paint as I still haven't mastered applying the paint. I used a white disappearing marker pen from Clover. On lighter fabrics I have been using Pilit Frixion pens which, like the white marker can be removed with a hot iron hovering over the fabric.

I don't know who is more gorgeous, your daughter or your work!

Thank you : - ) I have to say my daughter, both inside and out.

Lovely!! What pattern did you use for the shrug? I don't recognize it from the AC books, and it's exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks!
