What materials did you use? Silk, which I backed with a iron-on fusible. (Shhh, don't tell. But it WORKED!), plus boning, felt, cotton lining...

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the compliment I got from an elderly man at the wedding I wore this to the other night. He said, "Honey, that dress looks good and YOU look good on it."

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slowly. Follow the videos closely, and you will no doubt have an amazing dress. I want to make 40 others in 40 different colours and prints. This dress is the best thing I have ever made because I actually took the time to finish all the little details. The video tutorials slowed me down when I would normally take shortcuts, etc.
