What are you most proud of? Here's what I've learned taking this course: ponte stretches when it hangs, so expect the peplums to be positioned lower on the waistline than originally planned. Second, the lining is probably the most difficult to gauge when pairing with a knit since you are attempting to place a non-stretch woven going into a stretchy dress. Third, if one ignores fitting issues on the muslin, it will show up on the final garment! My dress is slightly too wide, so I feel I'm swimming in it, which is magnified with a knit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made 4 muslins, that's right, I sewed, marked, and ripped apart 4 dresses before cutting into the fashion fabric. The entire dress fabric was thread traced except for the lining, (regretfully) because I had to rip apart the lining and begin again since it didn't fit perfectly within the dress. The lining and zipper was hand basted in, which honestly, gives one much more control and precision than by machine. The extra tedious steps do come in handy later, and while you may lose time when using hand basting couture methods, I promise, you'll gain it back in sleep and comfort.
