I like your colour combination and you were very sensible in your choice of patterns - nothing too ambitious, and all things you'll be able to make again many times without people noticing that it's the same design as the previous ones. I must do a SWAP wardrobe myself sometime.

Great looking wardrobe and congrats on finishing! I hate I didn't get to finish, but I'm enjoying all of the reviews of those that did. I hope there's another soon also.

Stephenie - Aw, such a sweet compliment! Thank you! And tlmck3 - I owe so much to this contest for improving my sewing skills and for developing my wardrobe style. It's hard to stay disciplined to one color palate through 10 items! I also learned the value of TNT patterns - once I had sewn it once, I could go back and say, now how can I improve this or put my own stamp on things? It was a great experience!

You did a fabulous job--I never would have guessed you were a beginning sewer. great choices for a workable, expandable wardrobe and you've done a good job with fitting. I'm impressed at how much you pushed your skills. You are going to be a very, very expert sewer in very short order.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't tell you all what a thrill it is to read all your sweet comments, they all mean so much to me! This contest has been rewarding in so many ways - and has really changed how I approach sewing and patterns - and your thoughtful feedback is icing on the cake! Mwah!

The photos tell the story ... you look extremely proud and comfy in your new clothing. (I have a book with a bib and burpcloth pattern I can share. You need to protect these new garments from the urp onslaught!) Great job!

I love your wardrobe and your pictures. You did a fantastic job. And to learn so many additional items while copleting such a large project is even more spectacular.

You did it! Is there an award for finishing closest to the deadline? Seriously, your clothes look great. Not home-made or beginner. Congratulations.
