What are you most proud of? I am not done yet. I am still not sure if this model is fo me, but I thing I will give it a chance. Learing how to underline and baste exactly in the seamline, even though it meant hours or removing basting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the videos, and watch again with your project. Keep going with the musling until you are 100% happy (I didn't).

Can't wait to see this finished. I think it's going to look very elegant.

Nice job fitting the dress. I think the pattern looks very nice on you and love the narrower long sleeve you've decided on. Look forward to seeing the dress in your pinstripe material. Have you decided how to place the stripes?

You dress is looking good. The sewing and pressing make such a difference eh? It is nice to see. I have my toil cut out and marked. Once I get it together I will post.

Britta it is so great to see your dress made up in a suiting material. I was thinking of making one for work but was worried it would be to complicated looking. Seeing yours looking great and very work like I am convinced and will (eventually) make a work version for me.

Thank you. I like the fabric but I am not totally conviced. It is tricky to get the fit right i think. But I'm giviing it a chance and it might be a work favorite!

It is hard to fit yourself without help ... but I think in the case of a work dress where you are sitting alot there needs to be more ease in the garment - to fitted will just pull and be uncomfortable when sitting. It's looking really good and the sleeves look very tidy.
