What are you most proud of? I got so many compliments on my outfit at the wedding and they were so shocked that I made the whole thing. A friend said, "Look at those seams...I don't think the seams on my dress (store bought) look like that!" It made my night! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made this dress first (then the teal surplice which I've already posted). I was a little nervous about the elastic at the waistline because I didn't want it tight. It turned out fine, but I could have pulled it tighter. You might need to experiment a little if you're new to the elastic like I was.
