What are you most proud of? Sewing the kick pleat. it took forever for me to figure it out. And i'm proud of the pattern too. I drafted my own from scratch since i live far from US and the provided pattern would take awhile to reach me. And it turned out great. Didnt really imagine it to fit me well. But it did so i didnt have to make major adjustments and i also skipped the muslin part hehehe, my paper pattern served as my muslin. ;) What advice would you give someone starting this project? It might get frustrating at times but just keep stitching. :) Susan's class is easy to follow and she covered everything. You will learn to appreciate and love handstitching after taking her class...I DID! :) .
