Graduation Dress

What are you most proud of? Finishing this on time! It was really down to the wire at the end. And I'm really proud of taking the time to make this with thought toward fit and construction, which I usually skimp on (to bad results!) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself longer than you think you need to finish. Test your fit in a variety of situations (sitting down, walking, picking things up, etc.) Choose your fabrics carefully (my lining is much too thin!).
