What materials did you use? I used a poly shantung for the fashion fabric and a casa fabric lining. I,also, used a 3" horsehair braid at the hem.

What are you most proud of? I am so proud that I was able to give her exactly what she wanted and she was extremely satisfied!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's a great idea to do a complete muslin first. If I had to do it all over again, I would have made sure that the bodice length had a better fit. Vintage dresses were a "perfect fit" in those days.

Beautiful I love vintage but with my 42-38-42 measurements they are hard to find. The dress and her choice of shoe look perfect.
