This is a great review and I loved reading your blog about the making of all these great clothes!

Blooms, well done! They all look really good. Another option for some of the wicking fabrics (plain colours) is I've ordered swimsuit fabric, cotton/lycra and their wicking fabrics and they've been great. Just another option for some of these fabrics, and closer to home!

That's a lot of base layer sewing! The fabric review on your blog is really thorough.

Wow, 25 garments. You should put them all in one picture to fully show off your achievement. Hope you had a good time in Japan.

A base layer wardrobe! I love, love, love wickaway fabrics. And snug undergarments tend to be the warmest. This was quite the undertaking, and it looks like you got great results.

I love your review, Blooms! Very helpful for both the wicking fabrics and for the specific patterns. You sewed up a storm (a beautiful storm, that is), and now the rest of us have the perfect resource for base layer sewing.

Thanks for the blog post, too! Blogs can go into so much more detail.

Your post and blog are stil helping the rest of us! A friend has a medical condition that is making her cold all the time, even indoors in the fall. So I'm looking into fabrics for warm, long underwear that would slide easily at the elbows and knees of indoor clothes, maybe as nicely as silk ones do. I don't think I've touched Supplex before, so your review is very helpful.
