and to think, this is my baby! I am very proud. I have been sewing since 1958 and my love of sewing saved my sanity many time, through 4 babies who grew up. I loved reading all the reviews.

I'm with Joan. My mind is blown! Very impressive, and your mini-wardrobe looks great!

This is mind-boggling -- how you did all this in a month is a mystery, but a wonderful mystery! :) Love it!! Everything here is beautiful and very professional-looking.

A terrific ensemble. Everything is beautiful and well-executed. Time to move up your rating from intermediate to advanced?

Very chic and smart ensemble. The color and styles were made for each other! I love the hat; it finishes off your look with pizazz!

FABULOUS wardrobe! I love that you can dress it UP, or dress it DOWN, AND I love you brightly colored tops going into winter here. :o) At least I HOPE we're going into winter sometime. GREAT JOB!!

As Nancywin said, can't see the storyboard, but really like your finished mini-wardrobe -- some of my favorite colors and beautiful on you.

I love every single piece, and you're off to a great start with your pants! I also agree on the non-stretch denim. In fact, I would even go so far as to say I think "stretch" is highly overrated, but I know I'm in the minority there. :o)

That's an ambitious plan - but the point to me is really to sew the clothes you want to sew. It will be gorgeous! PS I agree with you on non-stretch jeans.

I got to see your fashionboard by clicking on the More Info link. It looks good, but if, along the way, you find that the RTW jeans are taking too long to copy, you can do 2 of the Claire Shaeffers. Because a month is pretty short to sew 4 items, a lot of people throw a few TNTs into the mix or they'll use one pattern more than once. I think you can finish what you're planning as is! But since this is your first time, I just thought I throw that tip in, just in case. Em

I've tried 2 or3 times to fix that pesky thumbnail. You can click on the link entitled "more info provided by..." to see a bigger picture.

I'd love to see your storyboard, but the thumbnail won't click open. Your patterns sound great.

cast doubt aside these choices are superb, particularly the jacket. do copy your old jeans it is SO worth it you can make them over and over and over, need i say more?
