nice work!
as for shrinking- i dont think thermal fabric shrinks too much, but it is a good idea to always pre-wash your fabrics before you sew with them, not only for the sake of fit, but shrinking can also make your seams go wonky, especially if you've used more than one kind of fabric.

thats good advice .. and I will deffinetly fallow it next time I work w/ thermal especially !  Smiley and now that we covered the shrinking .. whats with the growing .. it seems like after you cut it it just starts expanding all over the place ... has any one else had that problem too ??

 any way thanks for the help
 and thanks to everyone for the nice comments ..

i made my daughter a shirt with the same stuff, still waiting to get inspired to make me one... it's sooo stretchy i can't imagine it shrinking!  she's still growing fast, (11 months old) and i haven't noticed any shrinkage. it's been 2-3 months now. i second the always pre-wash comment, but I don't always put it into practice either! anyway, the shirt's great, it drives me nuts if my sleeves aren't long enough, i'm tattooed all the way to my fingers, and i like pulling my hands into my sleeves on occasion...

I really like this!!!

I have a 12 year old, and am trying to get her into making or modifying her own clothes instead of searching for designer crap.
I think this will definately catch her interest!

Thanks for sharing
