What was your inspiration?
My favorite color! I have been a long-time quilter, surface embellisher, etc. I never thought I could actually sew a tailored garment -- but so wanted to. I can't believe how inspirational Pam was as a teacher. I was able to succeed and overcome all my fears of set in sleeves, flat felled seams, etc etc etc. Thank you Pam -- you're my inspiration!
What are you most proud of?
That I persevered and finsihed this!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I'm a plus size woman -- I needed to make the shirt larger to go over my hips, but the sleeves were too long and I didn't realize that until after I attached and finished the cuffs. So ... measure!
