What materials did you use? I used 100% cotton, but I suggest using something with a little elastic or a blend so it doesn't easily wrinkle after just one wear. Depending on fabric choice, this dress could be quite dressy. I wanted an everyday home dress.

What are you most proud of? finishing the dress, and learning a bunch of new techniques. Things I learned whilst making this dress: stay-stiching, new lining technique, using a chain stitch to hold lining together, bias tape method from Coletterie. And lastly, but not least, 100% cotton dresses wrinkle a lot.
