A couple of things:
**I like the jacket in the pictures...still not so sure about it in real life. Will need to wear it to see how that goes before I pass final judgement.
**The Simplicity shirt is sleeveless - more on that in my next post when I review the pattern.
**Love the versatility of the wardrobe
**Added a RTW pink cardigan over the dress in one of the pictures, will use this so that I can wear all the pieces to work this week.
**Yes, I will finally be wearing these pieces. I haven't worn any of them yet.
**I didn't make the white version of B3124. Just didn't feel like looking for the white knit. However, I will be making this top again.
I'm thrilled that this collection is finally completed. When my daughter showed up this afternoon to take pictures she couldn't believe that the twinset was made by me. She thought I had bought it. That was a fantastic compliment especially since this is the daughter that sews and knows the quality of my work. So look for a post on the white shirt...boy was that an adventure! *LOL* And my next piece after that will be a dress...y'all know how much I love a dress and I've got dress ideas running through my brain that need to be worked out!
Finally, a parting shot of "The Little Prince" - who will be 3 next month! Boy does time fly!
Congratulations to the New York Giants

...as always, more later!
