What are you most proud of? I think I did a pretty good job of replicating the dress. I even made the fabric roses and leaves on the sash and the barrette, as well as the crinoline. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't cut the fabric on the bias. I had horrible problems with the hem because some of the seams were bias cut. I ended up paying a professional to finish the hem. (That was my own stupidity when I remade the pattern).
