What materials did you use? Merino wool stretch knit

What are you most proud of? Creating a professional looking garment from lessons in this wonderful class. Now I know I can easily create original pieces making patterns from garments that fit my body perfectly then add other elements either created or pinned out from another garment.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try something relatively easy then you will see how it works. Match the fabric type from the original especially if it is a knit fabric. Write a construction instruction sheet by looking inside to see how the original was made.

And take lots if pic's!

Hi Mama Jeanie I just realised my reply didn't get to you! Yes you are right I take photos of the construction and what it should end up as and pop these in with my new pattern. Sorry I missed you before.
