What are you most proud of? I'm proud I finished it after the struggle I had with the fabric. It's a very slippery soft fabric with a tendency to fray horribly quickly. However, it drapes and hangs beautifully so it follows the lines of the tucks very well. For hemming I just used my overlocker to tidy up the edges and then hemmed that seam. I intend to wear this under a jacket or cardigan so I wasn't too concerned about the roll of the sleeve hem too much.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I didn't insert a zipper as the top had give enough in it to pull over my head (and my choice of fabric for this project would have rendered that a nightmare to insert). I also hand-basted my seams before stitching on the machine, purely as the pins were not holding the fabric sufficiently. Next time I will definitely make it longer, as the short length is a little too short for my taste and high waist^

Would love details and review on pattern. How was the fit, instructions. What changes did you make?
