What are you most proud of? The fit is perfect. I lined the skirt with a japanese green lawn and this was a perfect weight for this project. The belt I made from a grosgrain ribbon sewn onto belting fabric with a vintage buckle from my stash. I cut the dress on the bias. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I really enjoyed making this dress and learnt how to sew an all in one facing for the first time. Great finish. I had to adjust the front darts but apart from that the rest was easy. Elainemay from the selfishseamtress instructions were easy to follow.
