What materials did you use? an old knit jersey sheet, Createx airbrush paint, Dogwood button craft thread, the Angie's stencil from the Alabama Chanin website

What are you most proud of? Getting it done. I have never sewn with knits before, and this fabric seemed to expand dramatically during cutting and sewing. So I ended up hacking away large chunks of fabric to get it to fit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun and experiment. I was initially going to just sew this up to check for fit, but then decided to practice painting with a stencil. As long as I had the surface painted, I couldn't ignore the temptation to stitch it.... So now I have a garment I can wear, and I'm just hoping nobody notices all the places I nicked the layer underneath and had to sew it back up!

Lovely! I'm currently stitching a top for DD for exactly the same reason, although I'm worried it won't fit her. I'm very much enjoying the process.
