What are you most proud of? Getting it done. I have never sewn with knits before, and this fabric seemed to expand dramatically during cutting and sewing. So I ended up hacking away large chunks of fabric to get it to fit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun and experiment. I was initially going to just sew this up to check for fit, but then decided to practice painting with a stencil. As long as I had the surface painted, I couldn't ignore the temptation to stitch it.... So now I have a garment I can wear, and I'm just hoping nobody notices all the places I nicked the layer underneath and had to sew it back up!
