What are you most proud of? Great satisfaction (more than pride) about making a young child happy to have received a new dress. I was sent photos of them wearing their dresses. That was enough reward for me.*: ) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just dive right in and have fun combining fabrics and creating something unique. You'll find out it's not as difficult as it looks. Pick a pattern that says "simple to sew", Then add details as you go and it will look like a boutique dress in no time.
