What are you most proud of? Really proud that I finished... Even have a thread bar... Although I am not thrilled with my hem, might end up redoing that... This was a lot of work, but it was a wonderful and I learned a lot.... Give me hope that I can have a dress that really fits one day... What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would not use a cotton lining on a semi fitted dress, I will probably have to redo the lining and use a more traditional fabric.
