What materials did you use? This is a synthetic fabric.

What are you most proud of? I am very pleased with the fit and the comfort of the dress. In the end it came together very well. I really enjoyed the hand stitching in putting in the lining and the transition in the looks of the inside of the dress. The zipper also went in very well and controlled. I still need to sew in the hook and eye at the top. As a niece is getting married in March, I may wear this dress or another floor length one in green that I am just finishing following many of these techniques. Once you begin it's hard to stop. Thank you Susan.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The workshop is extremely well done. If you work slowly and follow Susan's instructions you will be successful. Of course, make a muslin...................
