This project is lovely! I purchased this course and have watched it twice. I hope to start my own project after the first of the year. I love the style of your Spring Formal Dress; did you use the course pattern and alter it? Thanks for the tips, Peg

Yes. I just used a different pattern. I applied all techniques of the course to this pattern. This course brought my sewing to a whole different level.

I hope to raise my garment sewing skills to a higher level, too. I'll keep you posted!
