Fancy Dress w/shrug jacket

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Simplicity 3526 Link to website or photo simplicity.com What are you most proud of? During the Holiday event, my daughter was approached by many people to compliment her on the dress. She told them her Mom made it and they were surprised. She said she twirled around to show off the dress so many times, she got dizzy. I'm proud that she enjoyed the dress and felt special. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read through the instructions before cutting out so you understand the steps. Since the lace had a shaped selvage that I wanted to use for the hem, I turned the pattern and measured to take advantage of that feature.
