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.

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!
