What materials did you use? Some kind of soft, heavyish cotton-based stuff. Printed with blood.

What are you most proud of? By fault (clearly not of my making, The Dress made me do it), or design, the top was determined to be way too large. And I do mean hugely too large.,, ..there was the rather marvellous design feature of a centre-front seam, which was ridiculously convenient in disposing of much of the frontal excess...plus another couple of panel seams. But the back needed to lose its centre peep-hole, leaving the tie somewhat homeless, before acquiring some additional dart-style top-stitch fashioning. Overall, I am most proud of my ongoing battle with the Devil Dress. Full details on my blog: tallulahtwirl.blogspot.co.uk/

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take care with the sizing of the top. If you're pear-shaped, I think the finished dress balances you out somewhat, but I did have issues with the pattern seeming to be fairly generous in the top (it could have been a self-made blunder but it does no harm to be cautious).
