What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, don't be afraid to repeat steps. Take advantage of the platform - I found Susan and others taking the class to be extremely responsive and helpful. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

Is a dress form necessary for this class? If so, which one do you recommend?
