What are you most proud of? First time sewing with stretchy fabric and with fold-over elastic. It worked out fine, although only the two side panels are the stretch knit fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure the stretch panels you add have the stretch going horizontally, i.e., around your body and not vertically, i.e., up and down your body.

I would drape myeslf in oh so soft velvet if it were socially accpetable, as George Costanza from Seinfeld has said.
