What are you most proud of? The dress fit like a glove, no taking in at the top, no cutting off extra material at the bottom. It was perfect. I did go through a muslin and made sure it was perfect before I cut a single piece on the fabric. It was the first time I had made a dress with organza and was terrified of the shifting and challenges and omplications this material can give you.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you take measurements accurately before you cut so you know the range in size you will need. Make the muslin, make the muslin, make the muslin. My best projects have always had a trial garment. I even took some lining and cut out the skirt so I would know how long I needed the length to be. I then used it to line the skirt and didn't go to waste. Give yourself time so you don't hurry through any phase of making the dress and enjoy each stitch and each how it all comes together. My daughter love it and loved how it fit her so perfectly. I wanted her to love her dress so badly, I didn't want to screw up anything!
