What materials did you use? polyester sweatshirt fleece

What are you most proud of? Making it work with this particular fabric. I couldn't find a white cotton sweatshirt fleece and ended up with polyester that only stretched on the length, instead of the width, so I had to change the layout. Also, because the fabric was so stiff, the roomy bodice looked not quite right, so I took it in quite a bit and then had difficulty with the differing lengths of the back and the front. I solved that by following another student's idea of leaving a slit at the bottom of the side seams. I think it worked out pretty well.

Looks like a perfect fit; the white is great, fresh. I love slits for both fit and style.
