What are you most proud of?
That I am going to tackle this advanced project with my Intermediate Beginner sewing status. Could not do this without my expert class instructor. That I stuck to it. Had to try and find the perfect pattern and fit for my body. Muslins I did 4 bodice muslins and 6 muslins of cups. Made my own bust pads.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch and do up muslins of both of the Susan and Gerties dresses. I did a Couture dress with Susan and did a muslin of a bustier with Gertie.
