What are you most proud of? I've never done anything like this before, building a bra into a dress. I'm a 36DDD, so bras for me are nothing to sneeze at. Also, I did a lot of pattern grading and altering on this bodice, so I feel like I designed this dress, rather than just making it from a pattern. Notes on the finished dress- the straps form a bow in the back at the sign on the skirt (printed on iron-on transfer paper and then ironed onto cotton) is a patch pocket.

I didn't use the dress that came with the class. My pattern is the party dress from Mary Adams's Party Dress Book. I did, however, grade up the bodice cups a couple of sizes and I used those to make bra cups with my batting on the inside of the dress.

Huge fan of the Doctor. Someone showed me this site today and I stumbled on your picture while browsing. I joined JUST so I could see your finished dress. LOVE it so far.
