What are you most proud of? The fit and how comfortable the dress is.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy taking the time over every step, it's really worth the extra effort. Also, buy the best fabric you can afford. I would rather make one great dress than 3 in cheaper material, especially when you are taking so much care over every stage of construction.
