What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just follow Pam's instructions, she is a wonderful tutor. And, if you are like me, add 4" to the length of the front and back as I am an oblong shape with a long waist! I also changed. The collar and cut it in two, as it is a one piece collar and I like a collar and stand, the fabric I used was slippery too - oh what fun! So make sure the fabric is one you are able to work with easily.
