What materials did you use? Viscose elastene jersey, interfacing, overlocker thread

What are you most proud of? it's a nice top and feels great to wear - too hard to take pics on your own.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This fabric was pretty stretchy and I think I pulled the neck bank a too tight when sewing - causing the garment fabric to gather a little around the neck - pressing with the iron reduces this and it disappears when I put the top on. Also the non-stretch stitching with the small neck hole does make it a sweeze to put on.

Job well done, very professional-looking. I love this fabric! Would you mind sharing its source?
