What are you most proud of? This is my first time working with polester charmeuse. If I never do again, i won't complain. That stuff is a P.I.T.A

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy pattern so there are a lot of construction shortcuts that make for a cute dress but not a garment that's necessarily made to last a lifetime. If I were using a more expensive fabric, I would do a proper lining and a hand picked zipper. I do wish I had done french seams for the unlined skirt. It's fine as is, but it wouldn't have taken me any more time and would have made a nice finish for this fabric.
