What materials did you use? I used a summer green border print linen.

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I completed my project and obtained a good fit! After many years of sewing I'm still working on perfecting the fit of my clothes for myself. I can fit my clients great, but I'm still a work in progress.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a relatively simple dress to make. However, attention to instructions and detail are a must. Definitely measure twice and cut once. I veered from the pattern just a bit when it came to facing the neckline, but it was my preference. Stick to the pattern instructions and you will have a project to be proud of.

Beautiful. I love that you used the border print.

Thanks Scheri! This fabric stayed in my sash for a while because I couldn't decide what to do with the border print. But, I like the way it turned out...it's a keeper! ;o)
