Your wardrobe is so inspiring! I have thought about doing something like this, but was afraid the results might end up boring -- you have shown me that it doesn't have to be! Very well done.

Congratulations on winning the contest! What a beautiful collection! You're right--there's no reason for SAHM's not to look nice. Especially when there's more time to sew!

Markie, Thanks a lot but the dupioni top is black. The wardrobe is black & white. Black is hard to photograph and the lighting caused it to look a little brown.
gaby said... (8/1/07 8:53 PM) Reply
OK, I have a confession: I want everything that you sew. I love your website and EVERYTHING that you create! You are so talented. You are so inspiring, I always look forward to your reviews :)
Markie1 said... (8/1/07 8:27 PM) Reply
Hi Erica- As usual, you have created some beautiful clothing. You always have a little something extra to add interest, fabric choice (like the brown dupioni top) , or just beautiful fit. Congratulations on your beautiful wardrobe!
SillyValley said... (8/1/07 5:44 PM) Reply
Erica I really enjoy your reviews. You're open minded about new things and you don't seem to get in fabric ruts. You know your body and you know your style. Thanks for all the effort you put into your reviews and blog entries!

Bravo! What a lovely collection! As a SAHM myself it'a great to see how you put together a stylish collection to suit different aspects of your lifestyle. (It's also a relief to hear how fabulous sewists such as yourself also have the occasional hiccup!)
