What materials did you use? flowing remnant of blue ?rayon? from stash, original top was chiffon, I bias cut the new top for a better drape from the thicker fabric.

What are you most proud of? My daughter LOVED it, she had tried to buy more of the original top but it had sold out. she was impressed with the fit and said it was better than the original!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I bought a tracing needle wheel from E-bay, it was about 1.50, free p&P from China. I'm glad I started with an easy copy as I know now that the pin system works well and is actually quite easy.
