stretch twill, from joann's. i made a practice one out of old sheet...perfect. the actual fabric...not so much...argh! it took a LOT of tweaking to get it to this, and i'm not 100% satisfied. but i can't complain too much. i'm way too self-critical. you can't really see it so well, but i made the bottom slit zippered, as suggested on whatthecraft, i thought that was a neat idea! excuse the filthy mirror. i was worried it'd make my already, um, ample, hips and rear look way huge. hm...not so bad...i think?
