What materials did you use? Satin Brochade

What are you most proud of? Before taking this course, I had no idea how to set the tensions to get the results I needed and, so, would not attempt this type of project.. I am very pleased with the professional look of the garment finish. I used a straight stitch to reinforce and secure the seams to avoid any fraying and the whole project was completed in 6 hours. My little girls were thrilled with their gifts, as you can see from the picture.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I copied a garment I had for myself and downsized the measurements to suit but there are several on the market to buy for children. Do your 'Tension homework and trust yourself.
