What are you most proud of? The application of the zip and how the haphazard method of piecing resulted in a reasonable result. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Decide on whether you want to use you Serger or Sewing Machine. I found my Janaome 744D wasn't powerful enough and didn't have the correct foot to make this project adequately. I've decided to keep my lovely Serger for projects without this amount of bulk. Be careful. Plan each step; cut accurately and approach with confidence.
