Project

dress for son's wedding

What are you most proud of? Barbara, Didn't have a chance to make the Vogue 8815 due to time constraints before wedding but watched classes and used your techniques to alter and fit a Vintage Vogue pattern 2903. I think it came out great and, judging all the compliments I got, so did everyone else. The yoke material was machine embroidered on a Baby Lock Ellisimo and really set it off. (Note the matching clutch I make!) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Like she says, it's not rocket science, it's sewing! don't be afraid to try something new!
