What are you most proud of? The boned bodice, it was the first time I had used spiral steel (or any type) of boning - now I want to make a corset!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are following the course, watch all/some of the videos first, it helps you to know what you are doing and why, the course is great to watch, and there are hints and tips that will help you before you start. Take the course :-)

Your dress looks FANTASTIC!!! Showing the inside of the boned bodice, and hearing your description now makes me want to take this class! Thank you for also taking the time to write about and photo your dress.
