Mini-Wardrobe Contest - Done!



It's done!!! I really like the tops and bottoms. I have the more casual look with the knit top and a dressier look with the Burda eyelet top. The shorts I will wear to death this summer. It is nice to have some tried and true patterns that fit me well. I can whip up a couple pairs of shorts each summer.

Are any of you as competitive as I am? I try not to be so competitive but I am. It is the root of who I am. Compete. Win. Go, go, go. As soon as they posted that they would give a free pattern and pin to the first person who completed their wardrobe, I was there. In the zone. Ready to do it.

Nope, I am not competitive at all. Bossy, yes, competitive, no.

You look ready for summer in your mini wardrobe, and very youthful. Nice work, Dawn!

Yay!! Congrats on getting it done! I love the combinations especially the blue ones that are both spring and summer rolled into one!

Competitive? Nah...just kidding. I think every has a competitive nature. Some are just more upfront about it. Cause I wanna win this competition :O)

I love your wardrobe. That green and blue are some of my favorite colors. I am so competitive that I am silly. I just got my 2nd issue of Burda and I was trying to figure out some instructions, and all I could do was sit there and think, "What if one of those ladies that blog figures this out and I can't? That would make me such a failure" I really hate my competitive streak and wish I could get rid of it. If I would spend that time trying to figure out instructions that I spend worrying that someone else will be able to do something I can't, I would probably understand better. However, it is just a part of who I am and I have to work to control it.

I don't want people to think that I chose easy patterns so I could finish. I did learn, long ago, to embrace quality over quantity. I really did need a summer wardrobe. I can keep my competitive nature in check when needed. I would never want to get rid of it. It makes me work hard whether it is sewing a wardrobe, scooping dog poop, or biking to school in the mornings.

Melissa said...

Holy cow, you're fast! Everything looks so great and coordinates so well. My fav is the lace top, but they are all wonderful pieces.

Paula said...

Biking to school...all becomes clear. No wonder you're so trim!

Reethi said...

Wow, you are done!!!! You are awesome! I saw that free pattern thing, but am a bit sewing burnt out. Love your wardrobe, looks great, and yeah, I agree with the others, my favorite piece by far is the eyelet, you made that shirt look spectacular!

Angelia said...

That was fast! Good job!!!

Kat said...

I just love the white top! That band in the front gives it such a unique look.

Dana said...

Psst, don't tell anybody but I'm so competitive that if I don't think I have a chance of winning, I don't enter. It's not a trait that I'm proud of.

Can't believe how fast you can whip up those outfits! They look great.

LOL Dawn! You crack me up. Nope, I'm not that competitive. I rarely finish the contests i enter! But I'm so glad you do, because you always make the best things!!
