This is the first piece of clothing I've ever finished! I taught myself to sew this summer and have mostly been working on quilts and simple bags. (I tried clothing in the beginning with but, umm, it was not good, so I decided to stay away from making clothes until I was more comfortable with sewing.) I know it's not much compared to everything people make on this forum but I'm still very happy that this wasn't a complete disaster. Especially since I almost scrapped this project. See, I had cut out the beige print from a pattern that assumed my SO had a 35" waist (because that's what he told me...). When he got home, I pinned and fitted the pieces and realized that he was 38". (He was NOT pleased to hear that.) Because I loved the beige print and didn't want it to go to waste, I improvised and added the orange side-panels. Smiley
