English netting 'Blessing Dress'

What are you most proud of? That I finally had the 'guts'to tackle the English netting. It is not for the faint of heart, if one is to treat the netting as it was intended to be sewn. There was a great deal of handwork in turning the bound seams on the dress. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hone up on your heirloom sewing skills, and your handwork skills.
