Grey Dress - Refashion and embroidery

What are you most proud of? I took a used dress for 3$. I removed fabric for a shorter hem and used it to add a pocket. I needed to bleach the purchase bias tape to match the one on the dress. Then I did some embroidery to the plain dress. It is a good camping dress ; casual and comfortable. More info here : http://igloovert.blogspot.ca/2013/06/thrifted-grey-dress-refashion.html and about the embroidery here : http://igloovert.blogspot.ca/2013/07/grey-dress-embroidery.html What advice would you give someone starting this project? The embroidery takes a long time, do not underestimate! Oh, and my wires would have looked better if I did them while looking at them from the top of the dress - now they look better from the hem up!
