One thing that I love about this pattern is all of the possible variations. Each one has it's own completely unique look. Suzanne also points out that this pattern can work for up-cycling old t-shirts, or even incorporating personal embellishments for additional customization.
The recommended fabric for the bodice is a stretchy knit, so Suzanne's pattern includes some great tips for working with knits: "Make sure you are using a stretch/ball point needle... Do not pull fabric as you sew... Press well with steam to help your fabric regain its original shape..."
