What materials did you use? liberty of london lawn, dottie bias tape, grainline studios' Scout Tee pattern

What are you most proud of? I changed almost everything about this pattern and it fits me WAY better! I raised the shoulder seam by 1.5 inches in the back and .5 inches in the front, deepenend and brought in the armhole, added 3" of length, and shaped the side seams. I wouldn't have known how to correctly transfer these changes to the pattern piece without the class, and now I have a tee pattern I will use again and again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the class all the way through, let it marinate, then go for it! It really teaches you to think about the way things hang and where to fix that if necessary.
