What materials did you use? Cotton and Silk

What are you most proud of? I found it difficult to adjust the waist/skirt back - Vogue patterns are always quite a challenge. But I think at the end it worked fine. I still have to finish sewing the lining ;-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you take your time to do this - there are so many steps! It's quite a long project. Also if you haven't used Vogue patterns before you may need a dress form or some help to adjust the back.

I love the fabric you chose, it really suits you. I have only just signed up so havn't started yet. Am looking for some lightweight wool for Autumn, as it will certainly be that season when I get it finished!
