What are you most proud of? I'm delighted with the lapped zipper and the boning. The lapped zipper because beforehand I thought it would be terribly difficult, but ended up with a very nice looking application by following Gertie's thorough explanations, and the boning because it's something I never even knew I'd like. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan for this to take a while. It's a fairly involved project, especially if you have a lot of fitting to do as I did, but Gertie's instruction is excellent and the end result is definitely worthwhile.
