What materials did you use? Ponteroma two way stretch fabric. Polyester thread

What are you most proud of? I managed to get the front and back pin tucks to match exactly, it took a while but it was worth the fiddle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Relax and enjoy it, I watched all of the first three sections and the start of the hoodie construction and that gave me the knowledge I needed to start sewing with confidence. Meg is right, it's quite easy once you get going.

Really lovely and great fit! You should be proud of yourself.

Thank you, I'm about to start on another stretch fabric outfit, this time a top. I don't have a pattern, I'm just going to make it up...fingers crossed!
