Congratulations, it's a wardrobe!

It's done. I spent some quality time with the camera and the self-timer this morning, and I actually got the master review out of "work in progress" mode and officially posted. Now I can stop looking at the individual pieces every night and wondering if I should tweak them a little more. I'm finished.

I've learned a lot this year about what looks and feels good on me. There's not one piece of this collection that I wouldn't be happy to purchase and wear on a regular basis. Working on this project has caused me to find a TNT pants pattern that I will wear for a long time, I finally learned to how work with leather, and I made some great tops that I'm really happy with.

All in all, a good 3 months of work. And the very best part - I have no worries about what to pack for vacation!

Your wardrobe looks super. The pieces coordinate well and they all look great on you. Don't forge, we'll want to see pictures of you wearing these outfits in front of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, L'Arc de Triomphe...

Congratulations! I think this is some of the hardest sewing you can do...coming up with a plan, finding the fabrics and patterns, sewing it up and finally taking the pictures! Your collection is wonderful! You did a great job.

You did a really nice job and won't you look so smart in Paris! I know I stuck out as a 'tourist' when I was there because the clothes I wore were comfortable but certainly not stylish! I hope you have a really great time!

Wowie! That's a great grouping of pieces! How fantastic is it to go to Paris and know that you will be totally original?!?!?!
