Bombshell Dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm proud of all the hand-sewing I did. I only stabbed my fingers about a dozen times and drew blood only about three times, so... pretty good stats! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I detailed the entire project on my blog. It includes some tips like... even though it's the fashion fabric, leave large seam allowances!
