What materials did you use? My fashion fabric is a green/blue linen. The warp threads are alternate blue and black, and the weft threads are green which gives the fabric an iridescent quality, it is hard to photograph and almost changes colour in different lights. I'm using white china silk lining and silk organza as underlining.

What are you most proud of? I think this course will make me take my time with fitting and sewing, so I hope I will have an amazing dress to be proud of at the end of it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to take tons of notes when you're watching. This course is really thorough and there is a lot to learn. But I'm sure the end result will be so worth it. I have learnt so much already.

I love, love that fabric. I don't whether I'm going to make this for myself or just pick a size and find a friend to wear it. I have to make too many fitting adjustments to make it work for me but I want to do all the couture techniques.

I have expressed the frustration with the discussion thread many times to Craftsy. I have suggested that there are many ways to show which comments you have previously read and can then can go back and read the new comments. Please everyone write Craftsy and request this feature.
