What are you most proud of? This was a rather time-consuming project so I am proud of the fact that I really took my time! I am often in a big hurry to get straight to the sewing machine, neglecting necessary and important steps in fitting and marking accurately. Also, I have always avoided plaids like the plague so I am particularly excited to have overcome this fear of matching. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is my first Craftsy course and it was excellent on all levels! It was nice to be able to watch lessons as many times as necessary. Furthermore, it gives you a deep understanding of couture garments and what makes them so special. While you may not use all of the techniques in all of your sewing, you will certainly find tips to improve all areas of your sewing.
