I actually started this project last year but after many sewing mistakes, I decided to stop. After about a year of getting some self-confidence back in my sewing ability, I finally got the motivation to complete it. Even after sewing so many things, you would think I can avoid silly mistakes like sewing into a layer of fabric I didn't want. The amount of seam ripping I do is unimaginable.
Oh my goodness, the zipper gave me such a hard time. At first I put it in and when I zipped it up, the fabric on both sides didn't line up. Then I had to undo it and sew it in again but it didn't zip up. I thought it broke because part of the zipper teeth looked bent so I went out to buy a new one and once I got home, the original zipper worked again... and then I was too lazy to return the new zipper so there goes $4 down the drain.
The photos taken here are from two different occasions. The first one had close ups I liked more while the second one had full body shots I liked more.
