Couture Dress - Vintage Sheath

What are you most proud of? The fit and the construction - this dress is one of the best dresses I've make. It feels comfortable and luxurious to wear. I took lots of care on getting the fitting right and I followed Susan's Couture Dress approach. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do it - the classic fit of this dress will be flattering to anyone and the couture construction makes this dress feel luxurious and very wearable.
