What are you most proud of? The bodices; these used many techniques that I have learned through the Craftsy classes (couture dress, sew better sew faster and others) and costumers intensive classes i took

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure, measure, measure. Do take the time to hand baste; it takes more time up front but you save a lot of time and frustration because you end up not having to rip things out, you get a beautiful fit and the end result is superior to just regular garment "construction".

Thanks Janet, I haven't really made the jacket from your class yet (I keep getting distracted with this stuff :-) but am going to make a jacket for my mother) but I have been applying the many techniques (especially the pressing and sewing without pins!). Things I learned from you which were especially useful was giving myself enough room when sewing and ruffeling those 100 plus yards of fabric.
