What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I am no longer bound to a pattern. I did all kinds of alterations beside the oblivious ones to this dress. The bodice lengh was very strange, I lowered it alot and made the band wider. It is so fun to play and create now that I have some confidence I can make things fit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I am going to watch Susan's couture class video over again the next dress I make. I ran into some trouble spots and have forgotten steps along the way. The red marking lines on the organza kind of show through some seam areas. I dont remember how to deal with sheer fabric. Next time I want to do this dress again in two cordinating silk print fabrics. For now I will take a break and make my 76 year old mom another sassy blouse, I leave the pleats off the front and she loves them!
