What materials did you use? 100% wool plaid. I used the fabric testing techniques from the first part of the class and realised it shrinks like crazy and as a result I was better prepared for this project than I would have been otherwise and got better results.

What are you most proud of? It turned out very well. I like the way the plaid matches perfectly, the invisible zipper is perfect and my daughter loves it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the plaid matching and invisible zipper techniques from the class, they work very well and give excellent professional results. The fabric testing section of the class is invaluable and helps you prepare for a successful project. For the waistband I used techniques from the pant construction class.
