What are you most proud of? Finally have the confidence to just go ahead and change things about a pattern that aren't working for me. I love how this dress really fits. The beading was fun- found a book by Kenneth King at the bead shop with lots of good ideas for bead embellishment. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the process- it's not a "dress in a day" project at all, but so worth the effort.
