What advice would you give someone starting this project? I liked this project, however the pattern of these (all of this class) do not fit me well. (I am not complaining.) bottom require relatively long rectangular cut, and this made a bit tricky. the fabric tends to stretch itself, and I did not know how I can control of them. Hem of bottom stretched also and I had to hide small tacking. I recommend basting and ironing well before final sewing.

I like it... I had a little issue with fit also when I made the pants and the dress... But I know I can figure it out to make it fit... .. I'm loving the classes and the patterns... before this class I would not have sewn KNITS...

I totally agree with you. Great thing is this class gave me the chance to make my own cloth!! Fitting better is something I will learn next.

Thank you! I did make several t-shirt with Burdastyle pattern. Burda has set-in sleeves and I liked learning it.

Thank you. I am thinking adding trigular lace at the bottom of the neck.

We have similar figures. I was afraid this style would not look good but it looks great on you!
