I'm experiencing beginner's nervousness!

I love this dress.

I found the fabric.


And I got the idea to use pink satin for pocket linings.

I have a vision in my head, and i'm nervous that maybe it won't turn out the way i see it in my head.

If you're nervous, make a muslin. It's a practice dress made from cheap fabric that gives you an idea of how it will fit. You can practice putting in the zipper, making the pockets, etc. without risking your nice fabric. It also allows you to perfect the fit. You basically seam it together, but don't necessarily finish the hems, etc., unless you want to practice that.

Some people, when they get better, make wearable muslins. The fabric for these might be from the stash, or cost a little, but they end up with a wearable piece that allowed them practice of whatever technique was worrying them.

I love the dress and your fabric choice. It will be stunning and you will enjoy it. Just go for it!
