Mermaid Appliqué Milestone Bodysuit!

What are you most proud of? I was really happy with not having puckering this time! I did use a JTHoopitup embroidery aid (even though I hooped the suit instead of floating). It really helped to keep the sleeves out of the stitch area and open up the field of embroidery because this was a large design and my first with adding personalisation! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did NOT use a WSS topper, and I really wish I had so the lettering would have shown up better. Making a note for next time! Also, I did have a missed satin stitch areas on the lowercase "h" at the end of the name because the needle just couldn't get up there. Next time I'll move the design down a few mm's.
