Final Mini Wardrobe Entry

Done! I think my favourite outfit is the pants and the silk ruffle top, but I am happy with how everything turned out and I think there are a lot of possibilities for extending this wardrobe further into a summer wardrobe.

Speaking of the ruffle top, Carolyn commented that my ruffle looks quite "bouncy" - I think that the edge technique Burda recommended adds a bit of stiffness and makes it that way, I guess different combinations of fabric, thread and stitch dimensions will have different effects.

Anyway here is the composite photo and the individual, more detailed shots, not very imaginative with my poses am I!?

I love all these pieces you've made. Nothing looks forced to match. I adore that silk charmeuse print, too!

Fabulous grouping! I love your idea of ties for the ruffley blouse; I don't like the shapelessness of mine.
