What are you most proud of? I completed it. It wasn't that easy once I started it because of the blue band had to fit just so. Unlike a gathered dress, this wasn't as giving. I like the back as it has a draw string to pull the dress in so it isnt so smock-y. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was hoping this would be an easier pattern that I could complete in a day or two. It wasn't. I normally sew for several hours a day, when I have time. It seemed like this one was a longer one to complete. When it came time to add the bands around the edge of the sleeve, I had enough and didn't do the band. Which if you didn't know about it, it may not be missed.
