What are you most proud of? i LOVE this dress so much! first time making it this weekend. made a muslin first. fit was great. didn't make any major changes to pattern. i lined the bodice of this dress mainly so the diamond in the back could be topstitched instead of using bias tape. i used pre-made bias tape to bind neck and arms. i opted to use an invisible zipper. will be making this dress a lot more.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? i actually did a muslin before starting this project. shocking! i thought this dress was going to be a lot harder than it ended up being. the muslin only took an hour, definitely recommend making one to see if the fit is ok.

*****WATCH sewing on the edge***** So helpful with bindings. Wish I would have watched it before I did this dress. It would look so much better:(
