What are you most proud of? The collar! I made a collar out of paper and played with a design. I used a reverse facing technique and tacked the collar from inside the dress. With this pattern, I can add a yoke, change collars, change sleeves, and if you have any other ideas for changes, just let me know!!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This mater pattern A line dress is not difficult since it is not lined. It took about a day to make. Even though it is simple, pay attention to details--matching seams, tacking, and seam finishes. Taking the course was the best thing I ever did for my sewing skills and sewing confidence.
