What materials did you use? cotton/spandex for the cuffs and band and regular serger thread.

What are you most proud of? I am most proud that these actually fit and that I was able to put the bands and cuff on without any issues.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Like I keep saying, don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Take the pattern and make it your own. You won't be sorry that you did :-) P.S. I forgot to check the difficulty box and don't know how to get it back. I would rate this project as super easy :-)

Thank you azpotato. I have already had them on. They are so much more comfortable that I thought they would be. They will definitely be a staple in my wardrobe this summer. And I will definitely be making more of them :-)

Oh my, these are so cute! Like little girl's clothes for grown ups. Love that! How was sewing with spandex? Any different than sewing with regular jersey knit?

Thank you Catja. I love these. They are so comfortable, and they make me feel younger too. This fabric is a little thinner than regular jersey knit, but sewing with it was a breeze.
