What are you most proud of? The fact that after 40 years of sewing my own clothes, I have discovered that I am short in the neck to waist back measurement, and now I can finally fix the problem of the zippers being wrinkly down my back. Very proud of all that hand sewing as well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time! For anyone from NZ, Sentoza Fabrics in Auckland sell white silk organza at a reasonable price.
