What materials did you use? Fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics; not sure what the content is but is was sheer and I had to add a lining that the dress did not call for.

What are you most proud of? Hand basting the underling of bodice, uses the feel of the threads together for stitch lines, perfect fit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is easier than it might first seem. . . just do it!

OMG Effie :) you rock this dress. The fit is perfect and the color on you looks beautiful.

Thank you Scheri!! Too bad I never put on the strap and hemmed it so I could wear it. When we go to Hawaii!!

Yes I think you should add the strap after reviewing other projects I like the strap it breaks up all that skin.....LOL
