What are you most proud of? The alterations made to create the exact look I wanted... and that it still fit well after all the changes :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time because the pattern is really only there for the base frame. Measure, measure, measure because drapery fabric can get very expensive. If you don't have a dress form, enlist help.

What a charming vintage idea! Your coat is beautiful. I see you posted your shoes; I would love to see your dress also.

Thank you for your kind comment :) The dress is completed, and I will eventually post it here as well, but there are no pics being placed online until after the wedding. I can't take the chance of my fiance snooping and finding :) keep an eye out in two months

An excellent decision on your part. The dress is supposed to remain private until the big day. I will watch for the posting of your wedding ensemble. I wish you many blessings and "happiness ever after."

After seeing this beautiful coat I will also be watching for the pics of your dress. Well done on the coat - it's gorgeous.
