What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I was able to use the techniques from the class and sew up this project with more ease than I thought was possible going in, and also that I was able to incorporate some of my own designing into it to make it my own.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, and don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.

I really like this and the hood is lovely. It really sets it off. This would make up as a nice dressing gown if it was made in fleece or even cotton for the warmer days. Well done you.

Thank you mubba0mine. I have some of each fabric left. I will have to think about your suggestion - it is a good one :-)

So cute! I love the interesting and unexpected fabric. The hood lining really goes nicely and adds to the design. You will have fun wearing this.

Thank you OriginalRed. I am looking forward to some warmer weather, so that I can wear it :-)

Oooh, you finished it! I love the fabric and how you lined the hood in a contrasting colour. And you even added a zipper! Impressive. :)

Thank you Catja. It turned out way better than I expected, so that is a very good thing :-)

Very cute! I love the fabric...in fact I just bought some that is either the same or similier. The pink lining in the hood and pockets "pops"...like how perfect is that! I also like that pattern much better with a zipper.

I meant "similar". 5:30 AM...way too early!

Thank you Pinkie. I love the fabric too. I have some left and I am trying to figure out what to do with it :-)
