What are you most proud of? My persistence! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't cut into the original pattern. Trace it off and work from that. Yes it is a pain but it is worse later if you don't! Once you have cut into the paper pattern it is hard to determine where you might need to alter if you don't fully understand the concepts. (And why else would you be doing this course?). For example: Initially, I cut a smidge from the back crotch but later needed to add it back as this was not a correction I needed.
