What are you most proud of? My fabulous find of a large piece of super soft Ultra-Suede doe-skin in the remnant bin of my local indie fabric store.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use and over-cast (edge stitch) all the way around the yoke -- this will give some stability to the edge, help avoid raveling, and create an even fold line when turning the edges under.
