What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have enough time. If you take it slow you wont get overwhelmed. It took me about a month.

Love everything about this outfit. Whats was the pattern you used for the bolero, its just perfect with the dress. the contrasting lining works so well with your fabric. First class job, and so Vintage.
