What materials did you use? 100 % cotton dress and lining

What are you most proud of? This pattern makes you think out of the box. I like the change to the back and it fits really well. I like the raw edges for a casual dress, kind of cool but my husband keeps saying I have strings coming off my dress!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I wasn't sure how I would like the raw edges so I made sure it looked like I was doing it on purpose. I used a contrasting color and top stitched so you can really see it. I also raised the back of the dress 2 inches so I can wear a bra. It doesn't fall off my shoulders which was a big concern. I like the big pockets but next time I will move them to the side seam. Its extra bulk in front where I certainly don't need it.
