What are you most proud of? The fit! I never had a strapless dress that fit me. This one fits me pretty well!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would definitely make a muslin at least for the bodice first. I used the smallest size pattern, but ended up taking in 6" all around bust and waist. Had I not made a muslin, it would have been a disaster. I blog about the project here: http://www.vivatveritas.com/2011/09/my-bombshell-dress/#comment-5239
