What are you most proud of? I haven't sewed anything since I was a teenager so I'm very proud how this turned out. The bodice has steel boning in it so it really has structure.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project takes a while. Especially if you haven't sewed anything for a while or are a new sewer. I have a newborn at home so it took me extra long to complete but I did it in the end and now I love it!

Gorgeous! You look amazing .... and you made it yourself! Brava! I wonder if you could cut the skirt pieces on the bias to allow a little stretch when you sit? I don't know as it probably wouldn't 'bounce' back into the right shape when you stand.
