What are you most proud of? This project had a lot of firsts for me: piping, knife pleats, and an invisible zipper. The invisible zipper turned out the least successful, but the rest looks great.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? An invisible zipper foot is probably key to putting in an invisible zipper flawlessly, The woven cotton feels great, but doesn't look that great. I think the dress would have looked better using a fabric with a softer drape. But I must say, it sewed up really quickly and easily with cotton!
