What are you most proud of? improving my drafting skills the photo where its on the dress form makes it look funky, but its because I drafted and made this to fit me specifically- the dress form doesn't slope like a real ribcage, doesn't have breasts (this is cut to sit right against the under wire of my bra) and I have broad shoulders despite my smallish frame- you cannot adjust the shoulders on the dress form to reflect that...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Like I always say TAKE YOUR TIME! If you find yourself getting frustrated, walk away and come back later. continuing to work while frustrated only seems to produce more mistakes!
