What materials did you use? The main fabric and the bodice lining are printed cotton.

What are you most proud of? That I finished it! I am new to dressmaking and usually find I have lost hope before I have finished. Learning how to do each stage properly really helped me keep focussed and feel I could do a good job.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found watching each video before I started really helped. I would also say buy the best fabric you can afford to. The cotton I used for the main fabric was cheap and unfortunately it shows. It still takes the same amount of effort to make the dress so I wish I had invested in better fabric.
