What materials did you use? A stretch knit I got on sale last year at JoAnn's Butterick 6930 Pattern Brown Thread Sewing machine Serger

What are you most proud of? I think changing out the cap sleeve for a standard short sleeve. It suits me better.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut the recommended size according to your measurements, shorten where the line says to shorten or lengthen if needed. Baste the front and back together by machine first and really look at it before you do the final stitching. Take in the waist or add a tie if needed for shaping. Don't worry about a slight gap at bustline before adding sleeves. The sleeves take that up and seem to need that.
