What are you most proud of? I learned many valuable lessons about fitting a dress - I have a long way to go but feel very good about this first attempt at couture

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Realize that there is a lot to learn, your first try will not be perfect but will probably be much better than any other dress you've ever made.

Love your dress. Looks like it should twirl nicely! And like you, I adore Madmen and the styles. Can't wait for March 25!

Your dress looks great. Amazing how much you can learn from one Craftsy class with Susan. I am amazed at how such small details can make a huge difference. Are you planning your next garment? How about the bombshell dress?
