Mum's Bali Dress

What are you most proud of? Matching the print up and my hand picked zipper was almost perfect - this is my 4th hand picked zipper. Making a dress using couture techniques that was still very light and will be comfotable and cool to wear in a hot and humid enviroment. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Work through each step slowly - trying to rush will spoil the project. Spend adequate time "getting to know your fashion fabric" particularly if you are working with a patterned fabric.
