What materials did you use? I used a cotton fabric called June roses. We have very few places to buy dress fabrics here and I use a store on ebay UK called Favourite Fabrics and i have never been disappointed.

What are you most proud of? That I got a reasonably good fit at my first attempt. I also followed Barbara's example of underlining in organza and finsished the hem with lace...very pretty.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have been sewing for many years and have never found a perfect, easy way to fit my body until I found this class. Don't hesitate, even if you are a beginner you will learn such a lot from Barbara.
