What are you most proud of? The bodice is embellished with Swarovski crystals, but the part I'm most proud of was being able to get the dress zipped. The invisible zipper got stuck at the last minute, and I now have bad blisters on my fingers from trying to close it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to make a flattering vintage dress, you will have to start with getting the correct silhouette. I wear a firm corset for my dresses, but a girdle or shaper would work just the same.
