Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo It's So Easy It's Simplicity Misses Dress Link to website or photo www.simplicity.com/p-1796-its-so-easy-misses-dresses.aspx What are you most proud of? I picked up the pattern because I thought it would be a beginner level... and at the time I was a beginner. Instead, I got a crash course in side zippers, boning, and installing lining. Wedding guests thought the dress was store-bought! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and don't cut any corners... you'll need all the details!

Q&A with School of Moxie

Scheri Manson asked:
Great dress. They say the devil is in the details.
School of Moxie answered:
Thanks! Yes, the devil was really in the details on this dress... but it was so worth it. :)
Iamjojokitten asked:
Yep, I'd agree with the beginner thing. This is my very first pattern and very first experience at garment making....learning loads of new techniques, but it's slow going!
School of Moxie answered:
Oh, wow! You are brave to have this be your first pattern. Don't worry about slow going -- it's worth it in the end. :)
