What are you most proud of? Everything! I had to alter my dress form to make it usable, and then I added too much ease into it (by making my center front and side seam markings too wide, I assume), so I had to make some fitting adjustments. This class was a great learning experience!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just try it. ;)

Very nice. Looks great! Did you use a dress form or did you drape on your body?

Thanks! I used a dress form. It is very old, from 1952 and took a lot of work to "make it work". I guess I should have added pictures of it on my altered dress form a s well.

Now that's the way a dress should fit. You got it! I know it's alot of work, but having a pattern that really fits is worth the trouble.
