What are you most proud of? I'm not particularly proud of how the midriff fits, I could have used one more fitting -- her waist seam in the back should have been raised and angled another .5" to make the sides lay flat I think. I am like how the bust cups turned out. I enhanced them quite a bit and raised the style line for modesty. I think I am most proud of is something simple -- the hand-picked and beaded zipper. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think it was important that I really tried to enjoy the process of making the dress. Set aside the time to watch the video and time to enjoy the art and engineering of the project. I flubbed in a few places, and there were more than three fittings, but watching the dress develop was wonderful.
