What are you most proud of? This is real couture - a lot of handsewing, the chiffon couldn't be machine sewn, 4.5' of hand hemming on the taffeta skirt, 5' of rolled hem on the chiffon. I am very very pleased with the boned corset - it literally fits like a glove. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be an expert sewer. I got great advice from Shaeri at Sew LA, if you can find someone who has sewn gowns professionally - pay for the time to get advice. Shaeri gave me the best step by step advice about how to construct the dress.
