What are you most proud of? That I got the hems perfect! My niece lives 10 hours away and I did he whole thing based on text messages from my sister. I would send her an emergency message ask for another specific measurement and then wait seeming forever for her to get back to me. After all one does not desturb an tiny childs nap to measure how long her arms are. Lol. When I go there and gave her the outfit she was so excited. She kept twirling and calling it her spinny dress. I was very glad that the helms were in the right place and I didn't have to alter anything. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to reinvent a pattern to suit your vision. I very rarely use a pattern without altering it. I think Of them as basic guides for sizing.
