What materials did you use? Two different knits, one in a solid and one in a print. This pattern looks great in both.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You should certainly give this easy pattern a try. Could be great in a variety of fabrics from jersey for a casual look, to something slinky and shimmery for evening wear.

Very attractive and fits you so well. Were both fabrics knits? Do you think it would work with silk or a lightweight woven fabric?

Yes, both were very light weight and both knits with a good stretch. It wouldn't work in silk or a woven because you wouldn't be able to get it on and off without the stretch.
