What materials did you use? Vintage left-over fabric pieces.

What are you most proud of? I made this with a lined yoke, all felled seams, and of a jersey/t-shirt type fabric. This made it very comfortable for Savannah to wear. I used fabric that I had left over from an outfit I had made for her mother when she was 4 years old and the white plastic rings I used on the shoulder straps are ones I had saved from one of her mom's old bathing suits.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can make your own patterns using clothes you no longer wear, cutting and adjusted fit where needed. They are much easier to pin and cut around than traditional paper patterns.
