What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the skirt. It was the first time I've made a full skirt before (and there was SO much fabric, even after gathering), but it turned out beautifully.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Double check the fitting of the top. The neckline drapes, which I didn't realize before I started, or I would have made it a little more fitted.

This is really lovely, I have only just got my first sewing machine was wondering if this dress may be a good starter

Maybe, you do need some basic sewing machines skills so I wouldn't use this as a first project, but as a first dress, I definitely think it could work!
