Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? Red bed sheet, muslin, cotton twill, stabilizer, and thread. Rat tail and couching foot. My imagination.

What are you most proud of? NO PATTERN! the short came from a pattern that I modified the heck out of. It rides higher in back than front. I added inset pockets. Not patch pockets. It has elastic and a draw string with button holes. I usually hem the bottom. He wanted the waist line dropped 2 inches so the crotch would rise. I forgot that shortens the length too! I added 1 in to bottom with fabric I had from making the shorts. I cut 3 in wide strip. Folded in half length wise then attached 1/2 in seam allow. Finish stitch, top stitch, decorative stitch.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? We thought a lot about making it very cartoonish or very real or human. We went for a in between. I might have exaggerated sleeves and pant legs more. I suggested much more black stitching or couching rat tail to make it look outlined like cartoon. I also think decoration but tatters without a lot of clean tailoring seemed more Samurai.

Want to be able to take in a coat. Will what I learn in this class enable me to do so.

IDK. She only covers sleeves. There is a correct length for the coat too; that's not covered and making more room for my big booty.
