What materials did you use? I repurposed a t shirt of my husbands that he never wore. I would say that I should have looked at the fabric a little closer. There was not enough stretch to this finished project. Live and learn.

What are you most proud of? I am proud that I finished, but it was not as straight forward as I thought it would be. Using the fabric from my husbands t shirt I thought was a great idea, until I realized that not all shirts are created equal. There was not enough stretch in the fabric. I originally wanted to make this for myself, but I found the pattern was too small as well. I thought I would make it for my daughter, but it ended up being too small for her too!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I am going back to the drawing board and starting over. I have never cut out a pattern from a pdf before, and since I signed up for this course I found a better system to use and probably a better outcome on the pattern fitting as well. Make sure your fabric has adequate stretch!!!
