    The motorcyclist me swoons over the jacket+leggings combo! Other than that, the skirts look like something I’d make and wear. Although the side “wings” skirt reminds me of Deer and Doe’s Anemone skirt (which I have plans to make in the future)

    Hmm, I pretty much hate everything but I’m glad some folks like these. I aim not to look “weird” with my home sewing, personally.

    I love this collection!!! I have a need for everyone of these pieces. The seventies chiffon dress is beautiful and easy to wear, weather day or evening for a more formal ocassion like a wedding or attending a play. The shawl coat is amazing, I love the slouchy look yet not too slouchy for when I’m wearing a big sweater underneath or just for any easy Sunday, the fitted jacket is great for when you need to look sexy and put together, the midi skirt with the interesting flip is perfect, much more fun than a boring midi , the simple dress is excellent in silk it has enough drape to hug your body and look attractive but yet it’s super comfy and good for winter with a sweater underneath but without one for summer and works well for work or an interview and a professional look. The fluffy skirt is super feminine and fun and would work well for going out dancing or a concert , the fitted pants are more sexy as is the short skirt both could work well for dinner and a movie . The coat is easy to make and cinched at the waist makes an attractive shape on anyone. I feel that If I make these pieces I have a complete wardrobe for every occasion. Awesome job, I’ll start working on it!!!
