What are you most proud of? All of my hand sewing, I've never done so much hand work on one piece and I think it really made a difference. There's more pictures of all those goodies over here: http://toastyknitsandsews.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/sweet-cherry-pie-dress/

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you've made a few dresses before, you can make this dress. I came in very intimidated by all of the detail work but once it's broken down step-by-step most everything is pretty simple provided you approach it with patience (i.e. don't sew in the cups at 3a.m. on too much coffee. Learn from my over zealous mistakes.) And get the spiral steel boning. I know it might be a pain to track down but it is really so much nicer than Rigiline. I am very much a convert.
