This is so inspiring! It's a great wardrobe and also awesome to see how much you've saved by sewing it. Now I can see it's possible I'm motivated to improve my sewing so I can have some actual fitting outdoor pants (too short and chubby to fit bought ones). It's really cool to see someone taking up this challenge in a different way, too.

I am so impressed with your professional finishing on these athletic garments. You have created a wonderful wardrobe. Bravo!

THis is a great idea, and you made some beautiful garments. Now you've got me thinking that next year I'll do a "week on the road with only a small backpack" wardrobe. Including, of course, wool jersey and stretch mesh.

Utterly fantastic, and I love your price comparisons. While I'm a runner rather than a hiker, I truly believe that sportswear is one area where we really can significantly save money by sewing ourselves!

You really are an amazing engineer of technical clothing and have wonderful sewing skills. I'm amazed! How wonderful to have garments to meet your exact recreational needs.

I've been following along silently and now can say: your outdoor wardrobe is wonderful!! I love the zip off hiking pants but really, all of your pieces could be happy in my closet.

What a great, practical wardrobe! Outdoor gear can be so pricey, and then not exactly fit your needs. Now you have exactly what you want. Looks great.

What a fantastic wardrobe, I'm impressed by the thought and hardwork that has been put into it. Thanks for the detailed reviews including info on the hi-tech fabrics used. I am in awe of your self drafted pants.

What an amazing wardrobe, so well thought out and technically challenging. Love seeing it come together. Bravo!

I think you could definitely be trendy all around if you consider your consistent use of the most modern technical fabrics available. Anyway, this is really great, thanks for giving all those details!

Having nearly always met the revered makers/impossible fit quandry, I wish you success and hope that you will share further details of your construction and fitting process.

I'm really looking forward to seeing your wardrobe come to life! I've always wanted to sew outdoors/rec fabric. You've actually inspired me to sew an Icebreaker knock off!

I like your wardrobe theme! Of course, the item that really catches my eye is your self-drafted top. I'm going to keep this in mind for the fall. Looking forward to more updates for the contest.

I love the idea behind your wardrobe. Can't wait to see the final collection!

I love your concept and your designs. Activewear is something I haven't sewn so I am looking forward to seeing your interpretations.

I can't wait to see your progress, it is going to be so good and may even get me sewing gortex.

Love your concept. These look like clothes I would love to wear. Happy hiking!

Holy Cow! this looks very ambitious! Good luck to you!

I voted for you on the last wardrobe challenge so I'm excited to see what you do with this one. It looks like another hit!

Your story board makes me want to learn how to draw. So cool, and I love the wardrobe, too!
