What materials did you use? Chocolate Brown & Pink polka dot cotton

What are you most proud of? I made a muslin and altered the shape a little to fit my figure better. It worked so I was proud of my adjustments^ I hadn't tried inserting a lapped zipper either, so I was pleased that I managed that too. I also made and then removed the waistband. While it looks great, I'm not a fan of wearing tucked in tops and so the waistband became a bit cumbersome and redundant.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely always make a muslin first. Choose also a fabric that has a little stretch in it. I love my polka dot cotton fabric, but I would prefer this structured shape with a little give too
