What are you most proud of? The entire ensemble is exactly as I had imagined it. I utilized 5 different commercial patterns, and several 'patterns' from my own designs to construct the entire ensemble. Hence there is no single pattern. It is a lovely little outfit, and I can't wait to see the photos of the recipient visiting Santa. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just dive in, but have plenty of time to alter and adjust for accurate fit.
