1954 dress

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Vogue V2960 Link to website or photo http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/search-pages-633.php?search_term=V2960&submit.x=9&submit.y=10 What are you most proud of? I worked hard on it. As I mentioned I made 2 muslins, drafted my own facing pattern and redrew all of the pleats to make it fit once I had adjusted the bodice. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a muslin first.
