What are you most proud of? I'm proud of how nice my buttons and snaps look, even though they can't be seen. I totally credit Susan Kalje's Couture Dress (here on Craftsy) class for that! What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's an apron/housedress. Don't feel guilty if you use a machine hem and it isn't lined with silk! I probably could have gotten away with it one size too big, but wanted to be sure it would be comfortable over bulky things. If you are going to do as I did and use it as an apron, I'd recommend trying it on after basting using the type of clothes you will be wearing under it.
