What materials did you use? All cotton. Very thin printed cotton fashion fabric, underlined throughout with a midweight black cotton. Bodice is boned with 11 spiral steel bones.

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 :-)

Hi, beautiful choice of fabric and dress. Since Gerties Bombshell dress class isn't for sale anymore, would you like to sell me her class so I can take it? I've been wanting to take it and Craftsy said her class is discontinued. Thanks!

This looks so great and an excellent choice of cotton fabric.Your sewing skills are really commendable.

Any class that produces such great results should NEVER be discontinued!
