Thanks for the compliments. The top is from a basic t shirt pattern I always use and chang the sytle, this one i just split it on the diagonal. The skirt is fom an old vogue pattern #7057 that I reuse many times. Must add I am soooo enjoying this class have since bought an air brush and compressor.

Did you notice any differences using the bamboo rayon compared to cotton jersey?

I have not used cotton jersey yet, I imagine the cotton is quite stable whereas the bamboo jersey is soft and drapery, so I pinned quite a it. I do like the feel of it. A hint for pinning, I pin from the wrong side so then the thread does not get caught up in the pin ends. Then I turn right side out for stitching. Enjoy.
