What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made this out of 4 different gently used tees/shirts. I had to tweak the pattern for my long-ness of upper body, but love this pattern now that I have it sized to fit me. So even though it doesn't fit the mannequin so great, it fits me wonderfully. I can't wait to wear it! I loved the Craftsy class with Meg and really like using clear elastic now. Thanks again, Meg!
