What are you most proud of? I went very couture with this dress--lining, underlining, boned bodice, waist stay, horsehair hem, hand-stitched appliques around the hem, hand-picked zipper, and hand-piecing and stitching all of that lace on the bodice! I felt like this project really stretched me a lot, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Allow plenty of time--the muslin stage alone took me 3 months!

Truly beautiful and sounds extremely well crafted! Great job on the patience as well....not giving up after the muslin!

Wow! What an amazing accomplishment! It's beautifully constructed, fits perfectly and obviously made with love. My favorite part is the lacy back and delicate buttons.
