What materials did you use? Cotton sateen for the shell, China Silk for lining

What are you most proud of? Most proud that I was able to take Lynda's techniques that adjust the dress muslin to fit me well! No more sagging backs, no more darts in the wrong place or going up and over my bust point. Also, proud that I was able to draft my own facing and lining from the pattern. It was pretty easy, but I like to "color inside the lines", so deviating from the pattern instructions was a something new for me. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take it slow and have a buddy help you! Pay attention to where your garment is trying to go (i.e. tug lines) and follow Lynda's advice. I had to replay some of the segments more than five times to finally understand what I was doing.

Your dress fits you perfectly! It looks wonderful and I like the fabric you chose. I took the class and I had to check some segments often too!

Your dress fits you so beautifully! I'm currently taking the class and look forward to the day when I have something that fits me so perfectly as your dress fits you.

Love your dress, beautiful fit! I'm still working on muslins, can't wait to be able to start the final dress.

This dress fits you so well and looks fantastic. I've just finished watching the class and hope that I can make something that fits me as well as yours does. (Mind you, I would probably need your figure as well!)
