I was actually surprised I had this many wins this year.  It didn't seem to me I had sewn that much.

  2. I appreciate that your pattern, fabric and footwear choices don't overwhelm YOU. You are my style icon, you know. All the best for the end of this and the next year.

  3. I always see something in your outfits that inspires me - not to dress like you but to dress like me and really sew & wear what I want. Hope you understand what I mean.

    1. When looking over these top 5, I thought "is there any commonality here other than I'm wearing them??" hmmm. Inspiring is good.

  5. I agree with the person who commented earlier that your outfits never overwhelm you, even with multiple layers and vibrant patterns. The jumpsuits are my fave, but the canvas jacket and purple print pants are close seconds.

    1. Yeah, jumpsuits are new to me and I want to make more. They're lined up and waiting along with everything else. It's more like me that's overwhelmed with things, but not by my clothes on me. If you get my gist.
