Wardrobe Contest: Defeated!
Wow, I can't believe I did it! And I can't believe that it all works so well together. I've learned so much during this process, and met some amazing people here and over at PR. I don't know if I would've made it without all the support. Thank you!
I can see how much my sewing skills have improved from my first piece, the brown faux wrap top to the final piece, the corduroy jacket. I've learned to appreciate not only a well constructed article of clothing, but having the inside of the garment look as nice as the outside. I've discovered the joy of hand sewing, which I've always despised. And I've also discovered that I need a lot more practice fitting pants (that is another post entirely). Patience is a virtue. Patience is a virtue. Patience is a virtue.
So thanks again to everyone for your support and help! And a special thanks to my wonderful photographer, Jen, who did a great job capturing my wardrobe, despite the incompetence of her model.
