What are you most proud of? I really took my time with this project, and also learned a couple of new techniques.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think a design like this can be tricky to wear. If you make it too big, it can easily look sack-like on a curvy body. According to the pattern measurements, I should have made a large in the hips, but I took it back to a medium for a little less ease. I think the result is that the dress hugs and accentuates my curves rather than trying to hide them.

I have been looking at this pattern since it went on Craftsy. After looking at your comments on the pattern page, then looking at your finished dress you just persuaded me go and buy the pattern. You did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

I'm always looking for patterns for silk, as you want simple lines that drape nicely to take advantage of the fabric. I love your dress - beautiful color on you! I'm putting this pattern on my wish list right now.

Thank you so much! I'm planning on making a new one this spring in rayon :-)
