What are you most proud of? The love the whole dress. Especially the lining and underlining structure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Put horsehair braid in the hem. Use easy but secure fasteners on the bodice (at back where the two fronts join)...after many snaps I reverted to the unthinkable...velcro! Otherwise the snaps would pop open or be too loose. they weren't adjustable, and they need to be secure but not tight to give the bodice the right fit.
