What materials did you use? knit fabric

What are you most proud of? The lace on the top with the vertical lines helps soften the look. It made the whole top I think. Also I made sure to make it long enough just longer than my wides point of thighs... It makes me look slimmer.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I actually only overlocked/Serged the ends... and nothing more. Super easy and fast. Choose a 3 thread overlock with short length and it looks fine as an edging. Hoping it will hold in wash as well... :-D I will say that I actually went back and adder proper endings as the overlock was NOT enough. It folds up to easily and the threads gets easily caught on something. Advice: incorporate styling advices for your body shape in your design. I am hourglass-ish/chello as my shoulders a slightly narrower than my hips. So my design choices was based on that I have big boobs (added the lace to soften) big tummy (made it not to tight) and big hips (made the skirt longer to fit me right below my widest point)

The sleeve length is very flattering--a little longer than most short sleeves. I want this blouse!
