What are you most proud of? How it looks!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great project for advanced beginners to intermediate sewers. Pick a fabric that doesn't have a set grain, so you can utilize the fabric without being stuck with a bunch of leftovers. I buy 1 and a 1/2 yds of fabric, and another 1 1/2 of lining, plus extra firm stabilizer for structure. I don't always make the little shoulder pad thingy, as that can be really challenging to get the bias tape on just right!
