What are you most proud of? I was able to createa professional-looking garment with my first try - it's really cute, fits me well, and is very comfortable!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the class - it take all the mystery and frustration out of sewing with knits! I learned a tremendous amount of information in a very short period of time.

Thanks to everyone for their nice comments! The pocket actually has a story. At the very end of the class the instructor mentions that a pocket can be added and she suggests a few styles. I thought, "Hey, good idea, and it would be easy!". So I cut out the pocket, measured to make sure it was centered, and put it on. Then, being SOOOOOO experienced (not), I decided to just eyeball the seam down the middle that separates the two sides. BAD idea - it was way off center. So then I figured I'd just sew another seam to match that was the same amount off center on the other side. Guess what - I messed that one up too. It took me two more seams before I got it to look right. I like it though, i think it turned out making it look more decorative!!! I got the fleece at Hancock Fabrics. I'd seen it a few weeks before and really liked it, then when I started the class I realized it would work out well for the hoodie. It was even on sale!
