What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, don't be afraid to repeat steps. Take advantage of the platform - I found Susan and others taking the class to be extremely responsive and helpful. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

WOW, what a beautiful dress and I just love the lining. I'll be delighted if my project turns out half as well - Congratulations on doing such a great job

I prefer this dress made in solid, non-pattern prints. Yours looks like it has a beautiful sheen. One of my favorites. You did an amazing job; can't imagine trying this with a newborn at home. Amazing
