What advice would you give someone starting this project? I followed the instructions for the Burdastyle dress almost exactly. The only thing I did differently was I made a narrow bias strip for the trim on the flounce at the neckline instead of a zigzag stitch. I did an invisible stitch on the back side to tack it down. I think it turned out really well and professional-looking. Also for the bottom hem flounce I did not use the pattern piece but cut a long strip of the yellow, pressed it in half and used the ruffle foot on my machine. The keyhole turned out bigger than I was expecting, I have to work out when to add seam allowances and when not to. All-in-all I am very happy with this dress, although Im not used to wearing white and I feel like Im going to get giant stains on it everywhere I go. But thats my own sloppy problem.
