This dress was not only the most involved sewing project I had attempted, it was also the first time I had ever sewn an important garment for someone else, following their brief.
I am very proud of this dress, it was a big lesson in patience for me. Every step had to be carefully completed before moving on to the next.
Looking at the photographs again, I still get warm fuzzy feelings. I am so glad I was able to make this wonderful, important thing for someone I love.
