Indian Dance Dress costume

What are you most proud of? It turned out better than I thought it would, and I was voted best costume at the party. I think the bright colors and the long, white fringe made it "pop". What advice would you give someone starting this project? Draw a diagram of your dress and work out as many of the measurements as you can ahead of time, before going to buy your fabrics, ribbon and bias tape. Make sure you give yourself PLENTY of time to make this. While I did it in one day, I didn't get the patterned designs sewn onto the back of the top. I also think I will go back and add some 1/2" turquoise bias tape to the hems of the sleeves.
