What are you most proud of? Once again that it is a knit. That the pattern did not recommend a knit. That I was able to make the flat pattern changes and draft to create a garment that fits and suits my plus size figure.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Please watch the video, take notes, lots of notes. Give yourself the freedom to just give a project a try.....first time or experienced sewers will benefit from the video lessons. I have a review with more of the process details and pictures if you would like to review. HAVE FUN!
